In-Person Training consists of public classes conducted by one of our subject matter experts at one of our designated locations in one or more consecutive days.
Engineers and technical managers wanting to develop a working understanding of reliability engineering topics, including how to measure and improve product life.
This course requires the participant to be comfortable with advanced algebra including exponentials and logarithms. Calculus is referenced in the materials but used in a conceptual fashion and not required to complete the exercises.
This program provides a broad overview of Reliability Engineering tools, covering both conceptual applications and the mathematical foundation of some of the more commonly used tools. Selected topics include definitions of reliability terms, reliability modeling, accelerated testing, life prediction, and system reliability analysis.
Introduction to Reliability Engineering provides participants with a working knowledge of common reliability tools and methods and provides a foundation for using those tools on the job. The broad overview of tools allows the participant to determine whether further study in a particular area will be beneficial for his/her company. Whether we are considering product design or manufacturing or other equipment, reliability is concerned with having the product/equipment available when needed and improving the life of that product/equipment. The course includes many exercises intended to provide the participant with practical application of the tools/methods discussed.
- Historical reliability failures
- Normalization of deviance
- Relationship between quality and reliability
- Failure mode and mechanism
