The November 2014 IndyASQ Dinner Meeting will be held Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at the University of Indianapolis.
Root Cause Failure Analysis: Tools, Practices, and Case Histories
Nick Warren has been the featured speaker at a number of ASQ chapters in the Midwest (including the Indianapolis chapter), discussing Root Cause Failure Analysis and the importance of understanding the Physics of Failure when solving problems in industry. For those unfamiliar with this topic, the analytical instrumentation and disciplined approach of Failure Analysis is similar to what is seen in the popular TV series CSI. Nick’s lab does not solve crimes against humanity like CSI. Instead, they solve the most challenging technical problems found in industry!
Come ready for an interactive multi-media presentation where Nick will share compelling case histories and insights from over 25 years of experience! As time permits, Nick will field your most difficult questions regarding component failures (material, mechanical and electrical). This presentation will be technically informative for those working in the quality, procurement, manufacturing, design, component, and process engineering disciplines. To find out more about Nick’s lab, go to www.exelisinc.com.
If you have a specific failure analysis topic you desire Nick to address either by phone or in the meeting, please contact Nick at email@example.com.
Nick Warren manages the Exelis Product Assurance Lab, a world class failure analysis lab located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Nick has spent 27 years in failure analysis, 14 as an engineer and 14 years as manager of a large multi-disciplined staff of engineers and scientists. The Exelis Product Assurance Lab charter includes performing analytical work for defense, aerospace, biomedical, automotive and commercial companies outside of Exelis. Nick and his staff have expertise in performing failure analysis on a broad range of components, ranging from mechanical fasteners to microelectronic devices and printed circuit board assemblies. The Product Assurance Lab is knowledgeable in most industrial manufacturing processes, material science topics, environmentally-assisted failure mechanisms and electronic component failure mechanisms.
