When: Tuesday, March 13, 2018 from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Location: MCL, 2370 W 86th St, Indianapolis, IN 46260
Topic: Basics of Monte Carlo Simulation in Quality and Reliability Applications

This presentation will cover the use of Monte Carlo simulation in engineering applications. The application are numerous including tolerance stack-up, process variation, stochastic process, reliability, safety risk analysis and many more. Monte Carlo simulation can provide decision makers an improved analysis tool compared to single point estimate methods by providing a quantitative view all outcomes including the extremes with probabilities of occurrence. This presentation will cover the basics of Monte Carlo simulation and focus on design and process variation as frequent causes of quality and reliability problems. It will also demonstrate how to use an Excel spreadsheet to run a simple Monte Carlo simulation.

Speaker Bio: Andre Kleyner has 30 years of engineering, research, consulting, and managerial experience specializing in reliability of electronic and mechanical systems designed to operate in severe environments. He received the doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from University of Maryland, and Master of Business Administration from Ball State University. Dr. Kleyner is Global Reliability Engineering Leader with Aptiv (formerly Delphi Electronics & Safety) and an adjunct professor at Purdue University. He is an ASQ Fellow, a CRE, CQE, and Six Sigma Black Belt. He also holds several US and foreign patents and authored multiple professional publications including three books on the topics of reliability, statistics, warranty management, and lifecycle cost analysis. Andre Kleyner is also the editor of the Wiley book Series in Quality and Reliability Engineering published by John Wiley & Sons.
