Kristy Brinker Brouwer Presents at SWE Event
Mechanical Engineering Professor of Practice Kristy Brinker Brouwer joined Torine Creppy, President of Safe Kids Worldwide, to present how a Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) can be used to identify product risks specific to children at the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) WE Local Detroit 2023 Conference.
DFMEA is a methodical approach used to identify potential risks in a new product by evaluating the overall design and its components to determine failure modes and causes. However, it is typically focused on an adult.
The presentation, "Keeping Kids Safe Using a DFMEA," took a deep dive into what a child-focused DFMEA would look like in autonomous vehicles.
The conference was Feb. 17-18 in Detroit.
