Abstract

The 10th International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Reliability, MMR 2017, held in Grenoble, France during July 3-7, entailed a panel discussion entitled “Is reliability a new science?” with Mark Brown, Regina Liu, William Meeker, Sheldon Ross, and Nozer Singpurwalla as panelists. Bill Meeker also doubled as a chair and as a moderator of the panel. The panel discussion was spawned by the recent appearance of a book by Professor Paolo Rocchi, Docent Emeritus of IBM, titled “Reliability is a new science: Gnedenko was right” published by Springer in 2017. The panel discussion was well attended and enthusiastically received and could serve as a forerunner to other such panel discussions at future MMR conferences. This paper presents some elements from the lively debate generated by this discussion.
