Webinar: How Failure Analysis drives innovation in heavy engineering?

Organisé par Cetim and Cetim-Matcor
Strategic Insights by Robert Shandro, Failure Analysis Principal Consultant at Cetim Matcor
jeudi 22 février 2024
Via TEAMS from 9.00am to 9:45am (UTC+1)

Analysing failures is a critical process in determining the physical root causes of issues which affect operations and safety. The process is complex and usually requires many different technical disciplines, and uses a variety of observations, inspection, data collection, methodology and laboratory techniques.

By identifying root causes and implementing preventive measures, it minimizes injury risks, reduces downtime, and enhances productivity in heavy engineering sectors. Quality-endorsed organizations and insurance companies often mandate failure investigations to mitigate future risks.
