How to Create a New Reliability Forum?

07/13/2011 1:44 AM

I'd like to start a new forum or section about Reliability. How do I go about that?

Subjects would include: MTBF, reliability prediction, Weibull, ALT, HALT, availability, maintainability, etc.

thanks

MTBF? Isn't that the stuff they put in gas that's screwing up all the water?

That's MTBE. It screws up the MTBF of any water it comes in contact with.

I knew what it, I was just jerking his chain a bit with all the acronyms.

We have a sub-forum called "Quality Assurance / Control". It looks like that may include some of the subjects you mention above.

Thanks Savvy,

But that subject matter is too wide. No Reliability Engineer would subscribe to that forum because, for him/her, it would contain 98% noise, 2% information.

This new forum would not have great traffic but might become an international referent because there aren't many fora out there about Reliability and most of them are linked to particular SW package vendors.

What you say makes sense and I'll make a note of your suggestion.

Right now we're not looking to expand the scope of our forums at that level (if we did we'd probably want to break out all of the forums into smaller sub-forums - not just one), but we can certainly consider it if we do expand CR4's forum selection.

jomo,

98% of the threads here contain, "98% noise, 2% information."

What's your elitist point?

I present as evidence: Two Different Tire Sizes on Same Vehicle

Maybe you should start a Reliability blog.
