Introduction to a wide range of reliability engineering topics and their importance for R&D and maintenance-oriented organizations. Improves the understanding of available reliability engineering tools and methods, their outputs, and importance for successful DFR (Design for Reliability) program or maintenance planning. Improves the understanding of reliability requirements and how they influence the final product specification.
Introduction to Failure Mode Effects Analysis and how it is applied to improve a design in R&D organization, or how it helps to improve a manufacturing process. The steps of FMEA process, like defining functions, failure consequences etc. are explained, but implementation topics e.g. preparation tasks or facilitation skills are also presented. The course helps to understand a connection between FMEA and other activities in manufacturing or design, like test plans, requirements definition, 8D reporting tasks.
Introduction to RAM modelling, enabling students to create reliability models of complex technical systems (devices, vehicles or even industrial facilities). Failure data sources overview. Various redundancy strategies. Advanced statistical models – pros and cons. Monte Carlo simulation options. System availability and reliability improvement strategies.
Training course dedicated to accelerated reliability testing. Enables understanding of various testing strategies e.g. HALT, life testing, and how they link with DFR process and Verification & Validation plans.
The course covers the most advanced types of reliability testing e.g. accelerated tests on multiple stress levels, destructive tests, burn-in and screening testing. The material covers test design, analytical results calculation and execution tips.
Introduction to Reliability Centered Maintenance analysis process. RCM standards overview and considerations. RCM workshop on example system. Running effective FMEA as part of RCM. Maintenance strategies selection and optimizations.
