Resilient Engineering

Ensure trouble-free product and process launches

Discover & address critical factors now, before they impact your design, reliability, and reputation

with Resilient Engineering

Worrying about what you might have missed can drive you sleepless

Your design needs to be robust. You’ve got the majority figured out but there are still some unknowns you’re unsure about. And with each unkown being a potential high cost fix or severe failure later on, the pressure is on to prevent it NOW.

Using Resilient Engineering, you can.

Understand the risks

Find high risk functions with our unique Risk Priority Number (RPN) Analysis and build an understanding of your product or process using our function based approach.

Uncover critical Relationships

Find the critical factors that affect your important performance metrics. Validate measurement systems and prepare for testing.

Apply innovative testing

Design test plans for the critical relationships to fully understand how your system performs. With that understanding, you will be poised to develop and implement proven solutions for your design.

Preventing Failures together

When reliability matters

You can't afford doubts

Listing every failure mode you can think of and implementing a prevention isn’t 100%. What if your team misses something? Stop focusing on the “what-ifs” and start focusing on what must go right.

  • No more endless failure mode lists
  • No more inability to test critical features
  • No more hoping you captured it all
  • No more sleepless nights

Resilient engineering: Our Unique approach

The critical & functional Few

During design, time is not on your side. The key to trouble free launches, lower cost design changes and increased reliability is early failure mode identification and resolution. And if you’re designing something new that hasn’t been done before, the “possible failures” are potentially infinite. But to design a product that works, you only need to control the critical few functions that truly impact your end result. Resilient Engineering helps to identify the high-risk areas and resolve the what-ifs.

What makes it unique?

The Framework, the tools & the Mindset

Pareto

The Framework

We begin by identifying the high risk areas in your design, using our unique risk assessment. We find Pareto in this way by considering the severity of a possible failure, your experience with achieving a function in the past, and how significantly the requirements are changing.

Function Models

The Tools

With high risk functions identified, we expand the group’s understanding of the design by building an in depth function model. We work with cross functional teams from your company to build a function model that everyone can understand, as it will serve as the foundation for developing conceptualized faiure mode testing.

Must Go Right

The Mindset

Resilient Engineering is meant to complement your existing design process, focusing on the highest risk areas that need extra attention. From the risk assessment to the conceptualized testing, the guiding question is “What has to go right?”. While other methods focus on “what could go wrong”, we work to understand what must go right and focus intensely on ensuring that those things happen, thereby ensuring the robustness of your design.

From the Case Files:

Special Purpose Vehicle Case

Project Background:

A Shainin client has been chosen as one of the finalists to be awarded a multi billion dollar contract to produce a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to replace an existing all-terrain vehicle.

The Challenge:

The SPV chassis electrical system contains a number of new functions with unproven components that are required by the end-purchaser. Client engineering executives are nervous about the “unknowns” in the chassis electrical system.

The Assignment:

Expose high risk areas of the chassis electrical system design so they can be addressed proactively to improve performance and field reliability prior to evaluation and testing.

The Result:

Shainin’s client had the only design that passed the rigorous requirements of the testing. They were awarded the SPV contract.

The Method:

  • Strategy: Resilient Engineering
  • Prioritized high risk functions
  • Linked high risk functions to their system inputs
  • Diagnosed short comings in the current design
  • Developed a custom test plan
  • Implemented design changes to avoid failures and ensure functionality

Mitigate your Risks

Minimize Risk & Increase Design Confidence

Resilient isn’t a replacement, it’s a complement to your existing product development and launch processes. Enhance your design reliability with tools created to minimize the high-risk areas of new designs. Don’t continue to wonder if you missed something. Choose confidence in your design with a proven strategy.

Start designing trouble-free launches

The Issue:

Designing a product that hasn’t been done before? Does project success rely on your prototype? Need to identify and control the critical factors that affect your designs?

The Solution:

A Resilient Engineering Problem Solving Engagement

One of our dedicated problem-solving experts will come to your facility to assist you in identifying and mitigating your critical design risks.

How It Works:
  1. Setting the Scope | We’ll meet to review your project & prepare a custom strategy
  2. Identify Critical Factors | Our strategy will help your team identify the critical factors affecting your design and determine appropriate counter-measures.
  3. Test & Implement Solutions | Together, we’ll test solutions to mitigate those risks. Once implemented, you and your team can rest assured that your design is resilient. 

You don't get much time to design it 'just right', Don't wait until the errors and what-ifs get costly.
