New Fundamentals of Random Vibration and Shock Test Training Waterfront Center, Santa Barbara CA Discussion, supported by projected visuals and video clips. Commencing with a review of basic vibrations, sources and causes, we will explore vibration measurements, analysis and calibration. We’ll compare sinusoidal vs. random vibration testing systems, specifications, standards and procedures. We will discuss ESS, HALT and HASS. We’ll emphasize vibration and shock test fixture design, fabrication, experimental evaluation and usage. Also shock measurement, shock response spectrum (SRS) and shock testing. Review of modal testing. We emphasize topics you will use immediately. Today and in the near future we protectively install commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in our flight, land vehicles and shipboard locations where vibration and shock can be severe. We laboratory test the protected equipment (1) to assure twenty years equipment survival and possible combat, also (2) to meet commercial test standards, IEC documents, military standards such as STANAG or MIL-STD-810G, etc. Few if any engineering schools teach about such protection or such testing. Hence this specialized course. 17-Aug-09 to 19-Aug-09

New Isolating COTS Equipment Aboard Military Vehicles Singapore Test Services, Singapore The course provides proven details of: how to select isolators, design isolation systems and properly use commercial enclosures for COTS equipment, Shock and vibration analysis methods, equipment fragility, and applications to MIL-S-901D and MIL-STD-167 tests, description of the tests, review of shock and vibration conditions and test data from decks having natural frequencies 8 Hz, 14 Hz, 25 Hz, etc. Can one avoid these high costs and at the same time improve the design? Successfully meeting the tests and qualifying equipment the first time through is a principal objective of this course. The Navy’s MIL-STD-901D barge test is especially severe. COTS equipment often cannot meet the shock conditions unless protected in properly designed enclosures. Isolation of equipment and how the isolation mounts and enclosure are selected and designed are extremely important. Selecting the wrong isolator can be worse than hard mounting. Shock and vibration tests are very expensive. Failure may require extensive modifications to equipment and then retest in order to validate design and equipment. Delays to the program are inevitable, costs increase rapidly and schedules can be badly affected. 01-Sep-09 to 03-Sep-09
Human Error Prevention Seminar Chattanooga, TN This seminar is unique, particularly with regard to Marguglio's taxonomy of human error causal factors and human error models. Learning Objectives: • Classifications of human error; • The seven human error causal factors; • The three levels of human error; • The three levels of barriers to human error and to hazards activated by human error; • The four types of barriers at each barrier level; • Methods by which to make barriers effective; • Error-inducing conditions; • Behaviors to counteract error-inducing conditions; • Thought processes and behaviors leading to non-conservative decisions; • Thought processes and behaviors leading to conservative decisions; • Techniques to prevent recurrence of error - e.g., coaching; • Metrics; • Defense in depth; • Design and implementation of a human error prevention program. 22-Sep-09 to 23-Sep-09
New Isolating COTS Equipment Aboard Military Vehicles Westpak Inc., San Jose CA The course provides proven details of: how to select isolators, design isolation systems and properly use commercial enclosures for COTS equipment, Shock and vibration analysis methods, equipment fragility, and applications to MIL-S-901D and MIL-STD-167 tests, description of the tests, review of shock and vibration conditions and test data from decks having natural frequencies 8 Hz, 14 Hz, 25 Hz, etc. Can one avoid these high costs and at the same time improve the design?

Root Cause Analysis Seminar Chattanooga, TN This seminar is unique. Marguglio's approach is that various root cause analysis techniques are: • Substantially similar in the way by which the data are collected to begin with; • Differ only in the ways by which the collected data are organized and formatted; • Substantially similar in the way by which the collected data are analyzed. Marguglio provides a standardized analytical thought process which makes for greater consistency in the application of each technique and for greater effectiveness in the analytical results. Marguglio's analytical templates are unique. Also, Marguglio focuses on human error causal factors. 24-Sep-09 to 25-Sep-09
Nuclear Quality Requirements for Procurement of Design & Construction Services and Components Chattanooga, TN This seminar covers dozens of contractual clauses that make quality and economic sense for the procurement of design and construction services and components for both new facilities and major modifications to existing facilities. Although the focus in this seminar is on contractual clauses that are applicable to nuclear powered electricity generating facilities and U.S. Department Of Energy nuclear laboratories, and although ANSI/ASME NQA-1 and ISO-9001 will be the basic source documents, quality and procurement engineers from other types of high technology, complex facilities (e.g., gas and oil facilities, ports, military facilities) would definitely benefit from this seminar because the clauses can equally apply to these facilities. For quality and economic benefit, the contractual clauses go beyond the standards noted above. The implementation of a few of these clause can have the potential for avoiding tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenditures. The major elements of each clause will be described and the logic supporting the technical and economic benefits of the clause will be discussed. The Commercial Grade Item Dedication (CGID) process will be described, along with Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, it being a necessary element of CGID. 28-Sep-09 to 29-Sep-09
