Agenda          Workshops

Join a live reliability and durability engineering event!

Have the last 2 years of digital events given you Zoom fatigue? Are you looking for an opportunity to engage in face-to-face networking with live interactive workshops and presentations? The Prenscia User Group Meeting (UGM) is for you then! Join this in-person event and learn about the latest solutions available in nCode and ReliaSoft from both technical experts as well as real-world application successes.

This two-day, user-centric event brings together both nCode and ReliaSoft customers to experience software first-hand through interactive workshops, to learn about the latest capabilities through technical presentations, and to understand how other engineers have implemented these leading tools to address durability and reliability challenges.

Workshop: Improving Reliability Analysis by Including Degradation Modeling
12:50 - 1:50 PM
Presented by Prenscia


Struggling to make reliability predictions with only a few failures?  Let’s think outside the binary world of failed/not failed.  This workshop will show the benefit of introducing degradation analysis into reliability calculations, providing additional insight and improving confidence in the results.

Workshop: Determining the Root Cause of a Fatigue Failure
12:50 - 1:50 PM
Presented by Kurt Munson, Prenscia


What service loading conditions lead to fatigue failure?  In this workshop, you’ll use measured time series data – strain, speed, GPS, video, etc. – to identify the factors that contribute to a durability failure.  You will answer questions like: what conditions drive fatigue damage accumulation, when do these conditions occur, where do they occur on the road, and what can the onboard video tell us?
Networking break
