Does Having an Integrated Valve Assembly Actually Create Lower Failure Rates?

Recording Date: March 2019

When doing FMEDAs and analyzing designs, we theorized a portion of failure rates are because of failures in design themselves. If really good engineering process and procedures are created (and actually used!), a portion of field failures can be eliminated. The same goes for final element assemblies. Perfect integration is not assumed. So if your final elements are integrated, there are failures that will be eliminated! This webinar will look at what we investigate when do an integrated valve assembly assessment and how it directly impacts failure rates.
