SAMPLE PROPOSAL
The 2010 International Applied Reliability
Symposium, North America
June 15 - 18, 2010
Reno, Nevada USA
You are invited to submit a presentation proposal that addresses the Symposium theme:
"Sharing applications, success stories and lessons learned in reliability and maintainability engineering."
Please complete the following presentation proposal form and return it via e-mail to
Present@ARSymposium.org. The deadline for submissions is December 4, 2009.
Presentation Proposal
1. The title of the presentation (remember that attendees have a choice of sessions to attend so the title should be interesting and also must accurately reflect the content of your presentation)
Making FMEA a More Powerful and Effective Reliability Tool
2. A short summary to describe the presentation in the brochure and on the Web site (must be
“print-ready” and approximately 100 – 200 words)
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) has had varying degrees of success, as implemented by companies worldwide. When implemented effectively, this tool has the potential to be a powerful aid in reducing or eliminating the risk from product designs and manufacturing processes to bring about more successful product launches.
This presentation examines why FMEA has not been living up to its potential in some organizations, and describes how to get better results with individual FMEAs and how to implement a more effective overall FMEA process. Four key “success factors” are highlighted: 1) an effective FMEA process, 2) strong management sponsorship, 3) adequate FMEA resources and 4) “best practice” FMEA application.
3. A detailed outline of the presentation including the introduction, the major points to be covered and the conclusion (see the sample proposal for guidance – insert additional lines below as needed)
Few reliability tools elicit stronger responses from quality and reliability professionals than Failure Mode and
Effects Analysis (FMEA). Reactions
