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.
• The evolution of Quality and Reliability
• Reliability and it’s relation to Quality
• What is Reliability? And how it’s different from Quality
• How does Quality affect Reliability?
• Definition of Reliability and what does it means?
• Does it make business sense anymore to have it more “reliable”?
• Perceptions of Reliability. How does one define reliability in quantitative terms?
• MTTF and MTBF
– Dangers of mis-using MTBF/ MTTF. How not to use this term wrongly.
– Censoring Data; dealing with the lefts and rights of it.
• Failure rates and the Bathtub curve.
– Decreasing, Increasing and Constant failure rates. What does it all mean?
– The Weibull in action! An all in one solution?
• Probability Series, Parallel or mixed systems.
– Building-in redundancy in products.
• Fault Tree Analysis
• Reliability Apportioning or Allocation
• Increasing the reliability of a system. Back to Quality!
• Maintenance and availability.
– Coming up with a replacement strategy
– How warranty costs make a lot of business cost sense?
• Reliability – the many facets of engineering and operations.
• Product Reliability Qualification Phases. How it all adds up? E.g. HASS/ HALT/ ALT
• Reliability in Production – Ongoing Reliability Monitoring or Testing (ORM/ ORT)
