Course Objective

This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.

Course Description

129-Reliability in Facility Design

The purpose of this training seminar is to familiarize the student with typical RELIABILITY design criteria and their application to the facilities and buildings system industry. This seminar provides high level orientation for the architect or engineer with ample references for deeper study.

The learning objective is to provide the design professional instruction on RELIABILITY design philosophies within facilities. This seminar has a healthy dose of core multi discipline information to orient the designer toward thinking holistically about RELIABILITY.

No outside resource materials or prerequisite courses are required. This is not a formulistic seminar and calculations are not necessary. The technical topic is presented in a narrative manner and hopefully, in a thought provoking style. Although some facilities and building systems knowledge is helpful, general definitions and examples are included.

As with any continuing education course, this document is a living document. Any and all feedback, recommendations and correctional input is greatly appreciated. Updated photographs, examples and commentary are beneficial to all.

Maybe the designers of the pedestrian bridge that collapsed at the Florida school should have been guided by this course

I disagree with the "correct" answer shown for question 13. Good grammar, even in an engineering test, must count for something. The answers shown for . . . . cannot be considered to satisfy "all of the above since they are truncated and leave out key words that are needed before they can be considered as a part of the answer.
Portions of the review comments were removed because they address the correct answers to questions.

Reviews concepts which should be second nature to engineers/architects, but many times are overlooked. Fundamentals discussed should be adhered to in all aspects of design. Maintainability should be considered more often and winning design awards less.

This is not widely taught in my opinion so therefore was a valuable reminder for all aspects of design. Well organized and easy to understand.

Some good observations in the section on robust vs over-design, but overall this was more of an essay on doing quality work than an engineering perspective on facility design.

A good overview of reliability considerations for both facility design and maintenance. It would be helpful to go into further detail as to the types of facilities that fall into the various classes of reliability. For example, a school that also functions as a storm shelter should be designed for Class I reliability, whereas a school that does not serve such an emergency purpose can be designed for Class II reliability.

The numerical examples were very helpful and I believe the quality of the presentation would benefit from more of them.
