|Weibull-Log Normal Analysis Workshop|
|I.D. #||86034||Duration||3 Days|
| RMS (Reliability-Maintainability-Safety-Supportability) engineering is emerging as the newest discipline in product development due to new credible, accurate, quantitative methods. Weibull Analysis is foremost among these new tools. New and advanced Weibull techniques are a significant improvement over the original Weibull approach. This workshop, originally developed by Dr. Bob Abernethy, presents special methods developed for these data problems, such as Weibayes, with actual case studies in addition to the latest techniques in SuperSMITH« Weibull for risk forecasts with renewal and optimal component replacement. Class work is used to reinforce key concepts, lectures are based on actual case studies, and personal computers and hands-on experiments are used to analyze dozens of Weibull & Log Normal problems. Students will be fully capable of performing basic and advanced RMS Engineering analysis with their own software on completion of the workshop.
Attendees will receive the entire SuperSMITH« package - a complete self-study course and combined software package containing: SuperSMITH« Weibull, SuperSMITH« Visual, The New Weibull Handbook« - 5th Edition and the PlayTIMETM Tutorial Booklet. A $960 value!
***Attendee must bring laptop for this course.***
Bonus Introductory Course Included
To accelerate your learning, you may want to complete the SAE On Demand Course, PD530946ON - Introduction to Weibull Solution Methods, prior to the Workshop. Your registration will give you online access to this highly recommended, 75-minute overview of Weibull Analysis approximately 10 days in advance of the course start date, access ending the last day of class.

|Who Should Attend|
| An engineering undergraduate degree in any discipline would be beneficial. Engineers responsible for reliability, safety, supportability, maintainability, materials, warranties, life cycle cost, design, structures, instrumentation and logistics will find these Weibull techniques extremely useful.

|Instructor(s):||James Fulton; Carl Tarum|
Mr. Wes (James) Fulton is the Founder and CEO of Fulton Findings. Prior, he was a program engineer/manager for AiResearch Los Angeles Division, Allied-Signal Aerospace Corporation. As a program engineer for aircraft actuation projects he had engineering and management responsibility for the Indigenous Defensive Fighter (IDF) leading edge flap actuation system (LEFAS) development and production, the Rockwell/MBB X-31A LEFAS flight test program, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon LEFAS production and deployment support. He co-patented a multi-fuseable shaft (high performance drive train device). Additionally, since 1998 Mr. Fulton has been a private programmer and developed SuperSMITH« Visual, WeibullSMITHTM, LogNormSMITHTM, Normal SMITHTM, Visual*SMITHTM, BiWeibullSMITHTM, and MonteCarloSMITHTM analysis software. He received his B.S.M.E. from Georgia Tech and his M.S.M.E. from California State University at Long Beach.
Carl Tarum is the Director of Software Research at Fulton Findings. Prior to his current position, he worked at Nexteer Automotive where he worked on functional safety for electric power steering. Prior roles included Design for Six Sigma Master Black Belt, where he taught, coached, and managed certification records. As a Reliability Engineer, he developed life testing and reliability predictions for hydraulic systems and new development. He has four patents related to steering systems. Additionally, Mr. Tarum developed the SuperSMITH« YBath┐ and Help modules. He has conducted extensive research on p-value estimates for goodness of fits and methods to analyze mixtures of failure modes. He received his B.S.M.E from Montana State University, and his M.B.A from the University of Michigan ┐ Flint. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Michigan.
