Episode 27 - How Do You Engineer Reliability?

This week we talk to our friends Leo and Kitty from the Afterburn 739 podcast about Leo's serendipitous journey through engineering. Leo tells us about his time in the US Navy, and the many positions he held on his way to being a reliability engineer.

We learn the difference between a stationary engineer and a rotating equipment engineer and find out how you make the leap between those positions. After a storied history we reach Leo's current role as a reliability engineer and learn how preventative maintenance programs work and how they make manufacturing processes better.

Of course it's not all serious, in keeping with the tone of Afterburn 739 we also engineer the latest invention that will make us millionaires: the robo-keggerator.
