It’s a well-known fact that things fail – sometimes they just wear out, sometimes they get broken by an outside entity (e.g. an automobile accident), and sometimes it’s due to bad engineering. However, sometimes things fail not because of any physical problem, but because the process used to design and build them was faulty. As it turns out, three of the world’s worst disasters came about as a result of a failure of process, not a failure of engineering. In this talk, we’ll take a look at those disasters and how and why the process failed, illustrating that when a system is being built, not only is it critical that sound engineering practices be followed, but it is also critical that a sound engineering process be followed as well.
