Product Use and End of life
PEM's expertise in this area includes:
Process development & optimisation, faliure analysis and reliability analysis using the following:
Statistical Data Analytics: Coherent, accurate, efficient and effective statistical data analysis can be used to significantly improve and control process operations and performance. PEM has access to a range of in-house expertise & software to support statistical data analytics.
Failure analysis/testing: a range of equipment can be used to test failure modes and effects. We have access to an internal materials testing lab in order to analyse and characterise product and material performance.
Reliability Analysis and Prediction: Reliability systems analysis can be used to construct a lifetime distribution model to determine the times-to-failure of an entire system based on the life distributions of the individual components and sub-assemblies. PEM has access to software to support the Reliability Analysis and Prediction offering.
Statistical Process Control: Statistical Process Controls are used to gather statistics on the behaviour and performance of an industrial process and, using decision algorithms, can assess whether it is necessary to implement changes. PEM can develop & facilitate clients in the use of multivariate Statistical Process Control processes, including profile monitoring & variable selection techniques. PEM has access to software to support the Statistical Process Control offering.
Experimental Design and Process Optimisation: Experimental design can be used to make systematic changes to a process, analyse the results of the changes and use this to identify the appropriate process settings to achieve the optimum result. PEM has access to software to support the Experimental Design & Process Optimisation offering.
