It is clear by the number of component and system recalls, by many of the best companies in the world, that product reliability is not improving. To address this issue, this seminar was organized by Techwatch in collaboration with prominent experts in the industry and academia.
During the two days, presentations about various aspects of reliability in system and product development have been presented and discussed. Due to its impact and scale, the subject is particularly suited for a multidisciplinary and inter-company approach. Our goal was to stimulate open discussions that might culminate in partnerships, whether or not in a European context.
