Reliability Tours/Events We started a new program where we start touring companies’ facilities to check out their reliability cutting edge programs. (Mike Silverman) Dec 1: Tour of Agilent Quality/Reliability Lab http://ewh.ieee.org/r6/scv/rl/ March: Tour of Tesla (tentative) Any others?? www.reliabilityinnovations.org
Our roots go back to Bill and Dave See if you can spot Bill’s EE schematics on the tour.

What do you need to know to cover reliability for chemical analysis and life science products? Mechanics Chemistry Materials Depth of Expertise Breadth of Knowledge Etc., Etc. Manufacturing Reliability Test Electronics Programming experience in about 10 different languages is a big plus!
Our Tour -- a couple of notes There are several IEEE groups that have shown interest in doing some sort of Agilent tour event. Someone has to go first. That someone is us. The advertisement of this event has been kept to a minimum to keep the group size low. Let’s try the tour with a small group and see how it goes.
Santa Clara Site – The Tour 1) Agilent Archives -- Devon Dawson 2) Center of Excellence – SCS Products 3) Hardware Quality Test Lab Climatics 4) Hardware Quality Test Lab Dynamics 5) Genomics Slide Printing Robotics 6) Life Test Lab (Island of Misfit Toys) 7) Patent Wall
Host Responsibilities: No Picture Taking. Don’t bring a camera. If you have a camera phone, refrain from…. No Touching Automated chemical analysis may be in progress. Customers may be working from anywhere. High Voltage, Hazardous Chemicals, Hot Surfaces
Host Responsibilities: Don’t Leave the Tour There are security restrictions on our tour. Our route avoids sensitive R&D areas. If you need to leave the tour, let me know. Time to walk
