Keynote Speech I

Adoption of Reliability Techniques for Smart Consumer Goods

– Techniques and Implementation Difficulties

 

Alex Boussetta

Executive Consultant, Operational Excellence

Abacus Team Inc.

 

Smart consumer goods, such as smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, wearables, appliances, cars, have become a commodity from a consumer perspective. Consumers do not see the inherent difference in the complexity levels of these products.

 

On a regulatory perspective, safety is addressed in terms of minimum manufacturing and test process requirements.  Surprisingly, although manufacturers usually go beyond these minimum requirement, the achieved products do not always meet the requirements from a point view of reliability, or quality over time. Recent examples from top innovative companies include Samsung smartphones, Samsung washer tops, LG and Samsung Smart TV signal, Toyota and Tesla recurring issues, to name a few. This presentation will go through what tools and techniques are typically used in these industries and why sometimes they are being ignored.

 

The emerging use of Artificial intelligence vs statistics in manufacturing or supply chain decision processes regarding quality will also be explored.

Machine Learning-enabled Predictive Modeling Technologies for PHM

Dr. Chunsheng Yang

The National Research Council Canada

 

The need for higher equipment availability/reliability and lower maintenance cost is driving the development and integration of prognostic and health management (PHM) systems. Taking advantage of advances in sensor technologies, PHM systems enable a predictive maintenance strategy through continuously monitoring the health of complex systems. The core of PHM technology is prognostics which is able to predict the likelihood of a failure and estimate time to failure (TTF) using the predictive models. The predictive models could be either physics-based models or machine learning-based models. In this talk, I will talk about the emerging machine learning-enabled predictive modeling technologies for PHM, including classification, on-demand regression along with the real-world applications such as train prognostics which deployed the developed predictive models to perform the proactive maintenance for the train wheels.
