Welcome to and IAFPRP!

Hello! I am James G Short Jr. "Jim"

Welcome to the Home Page of and IAFPRP!

The "JS" in is all about me, James G. Short, Jr., the webmaster, and the unfolding adventure story of both personal and career aspects of my life.

The "Reliability" in is all about reliability engineering, which is the study of failures, the results of the failures, the causes of the failures, the impacts of these failures upon both personal and career aspects of every human life on earth, and what can be done to reduce the frequency and severity of these failure consequences.

But you may be thinking that the reliability engineering study that you know about is all just adding up parts and failure rates and failure modes and effects and lots of numbers and calculations. Maybe you may even have a basic feel for  the theory of reliability and safety to aviation or aerospace and just take for granted that it relates to your daily life.

Is that not already interesting enough to make it a subject that you cannot put down when you need a good night's sleep? Or is it more like a subject that would help you get to sound sleep faster?

My wish is to explore other ways to learn and apply reliability engineering theory and practice and study and to make it more meaningful and to bring the benefits to a broader audience. So that is  why I have  chosen to  call it "IAFPRP" or "Improve All Future Project Reliability Program" and to offer to serve as evangelist and/or coach for my campaign to promote my YTILIBAILER toolkit which can help bring you more exciting discoveries through UFANS and PRAISES and GIGOLOG into your life and mine? What if I were to present this exciting adventure and much more information all in one interactive website? It would include personal life and career experience, my project improvement campaign, and database toolkit? • JS • IAFPRP • YTILIBAILER • UFANS • PRAISES • GIGOLOG

Are you already curious and excited to discover what this is all about and where may it lead?

This involves my many years of life and career experience in outdoor nature adventure, classical music, electrical and electronic equipment control and reliability engineering, and observations of human life in general.

Perhaps this campaign is to me like the "Impossible Dream Quest" from the musical show "Man of La Moncha."  Maybe I need a nice long look at myself in a magnifying mirror to get a larger view of the many defects in my own life character before I try to help people around me. 

Yes, I can see that! But  from my perspective I still look around me and see a wonderful world with a lot of wonderful people who should be helped in  a meaningful productive manner,

And although I may pause from time to breathe, swallow, blink, and focus my eyes on my vision  for a  better world, I will always endeavor to not only see the gaps and obstacles in the way, but to continue to strive to make things better, as they should be. While I will continue to be aware of the failures, I will seek with even more determination to find the root causes for the bad effects. When the causes cannot be found and eliminated, I will look for ways to correct or to compensate and to make life on earth better for all honest and good people.

Like many people, I hate it when things don't work the way they should, it doesn't really matter what the thing is. If the thing is a cheap simple toy that did not cause me much loss of money or physical injury, I can think "Oh well." But if it did cost me significant loss of time or money or physical injury or loss of life, that is much more serious. I also believe that each human life is a valuable resource that should not be wasted, especially by careless action or inaction.

I believe that what has made the USA a great society where many people of many varieties want to come to live is the value placed on each individual human life. This value has developed over the  course of human history and is reflected in the US Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address, and in other documents. The result is that the USA has become a prosperous nation for the most part, due to the right to free speech, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and other related factors.

especially when they cause a significant loss of resources.  Resources  could be time and money, natural resources, human resources. When things are defective, 

The whole website is my campaign to explore and share some insights and lessons that I have learned to find out how  I can "Improve ALL Future Project Reliability Programs" for myself, my family, and many good people around the world.

I am also curious and excited about the potential discovery.

So OK, please come along and explore it all with me as I develop it!

What is this website all about? Is it about me, James G Short Jr [JS]? Who am I? What are my intensions? Who are You, the visitor? What is the IAFPRP "Improve All Future Project Reliability Program" Campaign about? What is to be expected here from you and me? Is it safe for visitors? How does it work? Where should visitors go next?

Great questions; let us start finding great, helpful, safe, positive answers! [ABOUT FAQ] • JS • IAFPRP • YTILIBAILER • UFANS • PRAISES • GIGOLOG
