On November 12, 2013 the IndyASQ section hosted a presentation at the monthly Dinner Meeting.
Nick Warren has been a featured speaker at a number of ASQ chapters in the Midwest (including Indianapolis Section 0903), 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 to Failure Analysis is similar to what is seen in the popular TV series, CSI (Crime Scene Investigation). Nick’s lab does not solve crimes against humanity; 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.
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 13 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.To find out more about Nick’s lab, go to www.exelisinc.com/PAL.
