Past Reliability Society Technical Networks
Committee Description: The R&M CAE in CE Tech Ops Committee focuses on the R&M computer-aided- engineering applications needed to support and help enable an integrated product development process. This Committee's aim is to provide communications on the latest R&M CAE capabilities and CE enablers, initiating at the research level, to the R&M user community. The prime communication channel is a CAE Workshop that brings R&M CAE suppliers, R&M CAE Users, and engineering automation implementors together in a single forum. Advocates in R&M CAE applications and CE processes form the membership in this Tech Ops Committee.

Committee Description: The Human Interface Technology Committee has the principal objective of increasing the sensitivity of system designers and program managers to the important impact of humans on system reliability. The Committee achieves this objective through the following activities: standards and guidance document development, presentations and tutorials, and publications in a variety of journals and magazines. The Committee members represent a broad range of scientific expertise, engineering expertise, and program management. This mix of perspectives ensures Committee products are applicable to many types of customers. The most recent Committee product is the IEEE videotape tutorial entitled Designing Systems for Reliable Human Performance.
Committee Description: CIST represents the Reliability Society and its associated disciplines on the Committee on Communications and Information Policy (CCIP), part of the IEEE-USA Technology Policy Council of the IEEE's United States Activities Board. CCIP promotes formulation of sound United States legislation, regulation and policies relating to communications, computer and information technology development. In recent years, the focus has been on issues such as electromagnetic spectrum efficiency, high- performance computing, digital high resolution systems, personal communications systems, the national information infrastructure, spectrum license competitive bidding and utilization and security, privacy and encryption.

Committee Description: The purpose of the International Reliability Committee is to keep abreast of developments in the reliability field in countries other than the United States of America. To achieve this end, the Committee Chair contacts individuals interested in reliability and active in the field, and willing to report on advances or developments in reliability in that person's country or area of the world. Reports of this Committee are sporadic and are as a result of efforts reported by cooperative individuals in different countries.
Committee Description: The principal interest areas of the Committee are to determine and provide methods of improving the mechanical reliability of an electro-mechanical system. In doing this, the Committee maintains a list of all technical sources and software for Mechanical Reliability, writes sections or chapters for Reliability Handbooks, provides inputs to the G-11 Committee of SAE on Mechanical Reliability, provides Mechanical Reliability tutorials to the IEEE Technical Activities Board and at other conferences. The Committee holds an annual Committee meeting and publishes its activities in the IEEE Reliability Society Newsletter.
PHM Network Description: The PHM technical network will serve as a platform to monitor the technical state-of-the-art in the field of PHM, foster closer relationships with other networks in this Society and other Societies, coordinate the dissemination of technical material and knowledge, and generate influence in the field of PHM. The objectives of the PHM Netowrk include:
• Monitor the technical state-of-the-art in the field of PHM,
• Detect the need for new PHM technical developments and take action to stimulate interest in such development,
• Arrange for publishing PHM related papers in IEEE publications,
• Organize and operate sessions at IEEE PHM conference and other meetings of IEEE at all levels and at meetings of other organizations,
• Generate and develop appropriate standards in the field of PHM for processing by or through the IEEE Standards Committee,
• Establish closer relationships with other technical networks in this Society and other Societies.
Christian K. Hansen
Committee Description: The objective of this Committee is to gather information about latest developments in methodology for reliability analysis, and share this information with members of this society. Areas of particular interest to the Committee include:
- Identifying new trends in reliability engineering.
- The development of new standards for advanced reliability analysis.
- Advances in Mathematical/Statistical Methodology with emphasis on practical reliability applications.
- New developments in software for reliability analysis.
A specific charge of the Committee is to lead the efforts in compiling the IEEE Society report, The Status of Reliability Engineering Technology. This report assembles input from all technical Committees of the society, and other input gained from recent technical literature, and reliability experts able and willing to contribute information. The report is published annually in the Reliability Society Newsletter, usually in its January or April issue. Previous editions of the report have received world-wide attention, and have been reprinted (by permission) in journals including the RAC Journal and the Journal of the Reliability Engineering Association of Japan. For a recent copy of the report please visit the Reliability Society Newsletter. The Committee greatly appreciates input for the report, which may be sent in any form and at any time to the chair of the Committee through the link provided above.
Committee Description: Sensors and sensor networks have become a highly active research area because of their huge potential of providing diverse functions to wide range of applications, not only on general science and engineering, but also on the infrastructure security, health care, environment, energy, food safety, as well as the quality of all areas of life. The RS sensors committee aims to provide a common platform for researchers, professionals, standard developers, and policy makers, from either the academia or the industry, to discuss the theory and practice on wired and wireless sensors and sensor networks, and share ideas on all related issues. Some key activities within this committee include: i) monitoring the technical state-of-the-art developments in sensors and sensor networks; ii) identifying the need for new technical developments and take action to stimulate interest in such developments; iii) fostering close relationships between RS and other societies and groups with common interests; iv) arranging for publishing pertinent papers in IEEE publications; and v) organizing and operating sessions at meetings of IEEE at all levels.
Committee Description: The LED Reliability committee will serve as a platform to monitor and foster the development in the field of LED components and SSL system reliability. The technical committee ‘s field of interest include
• Monitoring and Identifying new developments in LED reliability including SSL systems.
• Taking actions to stimulate interests and developments in LED reliability and SSL systems.
• Taking part in development of reliability testing methods and life prediction modeling for LEDs and SSL systems.
• Generate or coordinate technical materials to share and influence the fields.
• Arrange for publishing pertinent papers in IEEE publications.
• Organize and operate sessions at meetings of IEEE at all levels and at meetings of other organizations.

Committee Description: This Committee links professionals involved in assuring that their system hardware is robust and meets world-class standards for design quality. Interest is from the chip package level up to fully assembled large systems, with a special emphasis on the use of accelerated stress testing as a means of qualifying and systematically improving product reliability. Members share techniques for product qualification, simulation, environmental testing, and other aspects of assuring that a product is mature enough for the market. This Committee collaborates with IEEE/CPMT TC7 in various activities.
