Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
293-What Every Engineer Should Know About Reliability II

Reliability Engineering is concerned with the design, implementation, and prediction of the life profiles of a system or component—using a disciplined analysis approach that has strong roots in statistics, mathematics and engineering. Given a system, subsystem or component, one of the major challenges of the discipline is to understand the inherent failure mechanisms that govern the system and the development of the appropriate analytical scheme to determine the system's life profiles. The problem becomes even more acute given the phenomenon of aging and related transient phenomenon, as well as the practical realities of little or no data. Today, these challenges still persist especially as companies try to shorten the time to market in order to gain market share.

This second in a two-course sequence has examined some more practical issues related testing and parameter estimation as well as some topology or configurations that are practical and realistic but have not received enough attention.

Some of the issues addressed include:

  • Understand the various viewpoints of reliability, especially the engineering design viewpoint.
  • The use of nonparametric approach to estimate the reliability and hazard function functions
  • Understand the performance measures used to characterize reliability.
  • Appropriate reliability based intervention strategies that lead to optimally maintained system.
  • Availability, Maintainability and related Performability measures.

Under these broad themes, the topics to be covered include:

  • Reliability Models
  • Static Reliability
  • Reliability Improvement
  • Reparable Systems-Availability Models
  • System Redesign
  • Maintenance

The second sequence will focus on the all important area of dependency analysis, interference theory, data analysis and testing.
