Join Chris and Fred as they discuss the different backgrounds associated with ‘experience’ based reliability engineers versus those with academic backgrounds (noting that many often have both). The ‘typical’ shortcomings associated with exclusively academic reliability engineers revolve around a lack of understanding of organizational culture and practicalities of manufacturing. The ‘typical’ shortcomings associated with exclusively experiential reliability engineers is a lack of understanding of the underlying theory.
But wait … we know that these are anecdotal stereotypes and not truly indicative of every reliability engineer (or are they?) Please listen to this podcast if this is something you find intriguing.
