In the past decade, international organizations began to pay more attention to data driven mechanical technology and reviewed their internal practices. Useful information can be extracted from data and automation processes are formulated. The reliability of system thereby became a subject undergoing intense study. Yet, some organizations in Hong Kong are still grounded in traditional practice due to few publicity of reliability methods. The proposed symposium served as a platform to promote the field of reliability theory and industrial statistics and facilitate the exchange of ideas among experts.


To encourage the exchange of research ideas and increase publicity of system reliability and industrial statistics, local and international speakers are invited to share their views on the cutting-edge methodologies. Each session includes a discussion period where participants can exchange views with the experts and foster future development in Hong Kong.
