RAMS® 2015 Mobile App
We are excited to announce our new official mobile app for the 61st Annual Reliability & Maintainability Symposium which should be available by 1/15/2015. Our goal is to provide you with the latest up to date interactive content on the go for this year’s symposium. So plan on bringing and using your smart phone, tablet, or laptop so you can use the RAMS® App during the conference. We’ll be interested in getting your feedback on how well the App improves your RAMS® experience. Available for iPhone, iPad, Android—and as a mobile web app for users with other devices. For more information click here.
RAMS® 2015 will be held in Palm Harbor, FL, January 26-29, 2015.
Reliability is not just an attribute to be measured: it can be engineered into your products to provide an objective justification for customer confidence. The 2015 theme: “Unleashing R&M Knowledge”.
RAMS® 2015 will bring together an international audience of R&M leaders and professionals for in-depth sessions and tutorials presented by top experts, exhibits featuring leading companies, keynote session insights, networking and job related opportunities, and more. This year’s Keynote and Banquet Speakers will be addressing RAM aspects of the Joint Strike Fighter and Autonomous Vehicles. For more information see the General Chair’s Message.
The program includes:
• Tutorials, from basic to advanced
• Technical paper sessions
• Panel sessions
• Exhibits program
• Certificate program
• Networking opportunities
• Short Courses
TUTORIALS – topics range from introductory to advanced, and will be presented in two-hour, in-depth sessions at the Symposium. The two-level RAMS® Tutorial Certificate Program is offered. The first level requires attending five core concept tutorials; the second level requires an additional 10 tutorials based on professional needs and interests, taken across at least two Symposia. Due to the timeliness of the material, the Certificate Program must be completed within four years of the first core tutorial. Upon completion of the program, the participant will receive a RAMS® certificate, a letter of completion, and a list of tutorials attended.
SHORT COURSES – Two short courses are provided by ASQ Reliability Division: Root Cause Analysis (Sunday, Jan 25) and Introduction to Monte Carlo Simulation (Thu-Fri, Jan 29-30). For more course information, please click here [PDF]. Register for these when you register for RAMS.
Attendees continue to provide positive feedback on the practical, as well as theoretical, technical content of this symposium. The 2015 content is expected to feature roughly half the sessions presented as tutorials, and the other half as technical papers on reliability advances and case studies.
Unlike some technical conferences where The Proceedings represent the primary product, RAMS® is a professional symposium that emphasizes the benefits to be derived from face-to-face contact with peers facing similar technical challenges.
