Reliability online session:

Production is only as reliable at its weakest link

It does not take much to bring a manufacturing line or production process to a screeching and very expensive halt.  A malfunctioning button, misaligned electrical drawer or a faulty motor connection could be all it takes to disrupt operations.  When failure is absolutely not an option on a production line, how do you guarantee your component specs are up to the job? In this session, [components experts] will discuss some of the common tradeoffs in design, materials, and manufacturing processes of buttons, switches, and wiring that can result in wildly different quality and performance over their expected lifetime use.
