Reliability Engineering Seminar

Course ID RES
Format Classroom

These two days you will give you a good grasp of reliability fundamentals, and how to use these tools and concepts to help your company achieve a more reliable product or process.

Are you new to a reliability group?
Are you seeing reliability openings in the job postings and wondering what reliability is all about?
Have you been in a reliability group a few years but are stuck doing the same thing all the time?
Do you practice reliability occasionally and just want to get more fluent in reliability concepts?
Do you simply want to understand what the reliability engineers are telling you?
Have you always wondered why reliability was important?
Come to this two-day overview of reliability and get answers to these questions and more. We will start with definitions and technical preliminaries and move through basic probability, discrete distributions, and continuous reliability distributions, and see how these things form the basis of reliability analysis. Study reliability engineering and reliability program planning, starting with defining a reliability goal for a system, then allocating that reliability goal to the sub-systems and parts. Learn to set up tests to demonstrate reliability during the development process efficiently and economically. Since developing a product or process must always use lessons learned from previous products or processes, use tools in class like failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), along with flowcharts and other process improvement tools, and see how they are integrated in a define, measure, analyze, improve, control (DMAIC) process or process improvement to achieve high reliability.
Learn to model reliability via Weibull analysis, reliability growth modeling, fault tree analysis, and Monte Carlo analysis to not only achieve a reliable product but a safe one as well. Cover reliability testing based on a constant rate as well as the Weibull distribution with some aspects of accelerated life testing. Learn through Minitab as well as some Excel templates.
