Description

Failure Analysis will cover the relationship between the five factors that determine whether a plastic product is successful or fails: part design, mold design, material selection, processing, and product testing and validation. The course focuses on the fundamentals associated with each factor.

Considerable emphasis will be placed on failure prevention. We will utilize real-world examples to highlight the good and bad decisions that are behind successful and unsuccessful applications.

Principles of the failure analysis process are also covered as well as the economics of effective corrective action.

The course will delve into the tools of failure analysis, including testing methods that can rapidly and definitively determine the root cause for a failure so that the appropriate steps can be implemented to provide for a permanent solution.

Case studies will be provided to highlight the principles and practices associated with failure analysis.
