Reliability – Have you ever wondered how a product could have lasted so long a time and given you such a pleasure to use? On the other hand, the same product could have performed poorly in a different environment and you swore never to use it again! They have a theme in common and that has to do with the Reliability of the product. Whether in new product development, production, maintenance of a system and the warranty of the product, we all deal with reliability in different ways.
This brief course is designed to impart a simple and systematic understanding of reliability engineering with a practical bent to the participant.
