MOREHEAD, Ky. — Dr. Koroush Jenab, assistant professor of engineering and technology management at Morehead State University, gave a presentation Sept. 7 at NASA’s Ohio Aerospace Institute.
The presentation was titled “Embedded Reliability in Design Thinking Concept for Aerospace,” and was given at the NASA Academy of Aerospace Quality 2018 Workshop in the NASA Safety Center.
His presentation reported a methodology to implement reliability analysis in design thinking, which is an appropriate process for complex problems in aerospace.
“In aerospace design phases such as landing gear, this process is extremely useful in tackling problems with a lack of clarity in definition resulting from understanding the human needs, re-capturing the problem in human-centric ways, creating many ideas in brainstorming sessions and adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping and testing,” said Jenab.
The process is useful to students because of the hands-on approach used, he added.
