Equipment Reliability Maintenance
The objective of this seminar is to discover the value of failure data linked to operational equipment. The collection of data associated with failure events is a critical tactic for understanding equipment life, which leads to characterizing trends of performance and ultimately providing valuable strategic information for enhancing reliability through maintenance policies.
Participants are encouraged to bring system or component failure data for review and discussion. 1.4 CEUs.

Meet your instructor
Norbert Jagodzinski is a member of the adjunct faculty at the John D. Hromi Center for Quality and Applied Statistics and the Center for Multidisciplinary Studies at RIT. He has successfully designed and implemented many reliability courses for both online and on-campus students at RIT. He has extensive experience in applying reliability topics in industry for both domestic and international clients. Norbert, as a commercial pilot, is the owner and operator of Jag’s Aerial Photographic Service. Over the period of 25 years, many of the reliability and maintainability techniques have been successfully applied to his business operations.
Norm has provided statistical computer programs to Hewlett-Packard that led to private tutorials with Dr. Gus Weiss, scientific advisor to Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. He also testified as an expert witness on the subject of Reliability. A book entitled Failure Mode and Effects Analysis was written by Mr. Jagodzinski with special acknowledgement to USAF. He has also developed reliability software programs available on the CD, “Maintenance: Partner of Reliability”.
