NFF Symposium

Tuesday 14th June

4th Annual Symposium in No Fault Found

After the success from previous events, the NFF team is delighted to announce the 4th event to be held on the Cranfield Campus on 14th June 2016.

The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-Life Engineering Services at Cranfield University will be hosting the third International Symposium on No Fault Found (NFF).  The themes that will be considered are:

   • The operational impact of NFF
   • The costs and impact of NFF to organisations
   • NFF causes and research
   • NFF resolution and reduction
   • NFF and safety

We are keen to invite practitioners who can bring their expertise and knowledge to these themes and share their views in open forum.

Previous Symposia have generated keen interest among a diverse range of enlightened industries with over 150 delegates.  Please consider attending and contributing.

Who Should Attend?

Delegates from across industries and universities are invited to attend this event where industrial speakers will share their experiences and understanding of NFF problems. It is targeted at senior roles within the areas of:
   • Operations
   • Engineering
   • Asset and maintenance management
   • Electronic diagnostics and prognostics

The event was initiated in 2013, held at the Cranfield University, Shrivenham Campus. It was organised by the EPSRC's Through-life Engineering Centre and has become a major annual symposium.

The goals of the event are the following:
   • To give an opportunity to hear from industry about the latest problems in need of study and solution
   • To provide exposure to the latest research in NFF
   • To offer a forum for applied and theoretical analysis
   • To introduce young candidates and scientists to the concept of NFF
   • To build bridges between industrial experience and academic expertise thereof

Attendance also provides an opportunity to learn more about the EPSRC Centre’s No Fault Found research programme and other Through-life Engineering research at Cranfield.
