Reliability Analysis

Who should attend?

  • Research and Development Engineers and Specialists
  • Product Development Engineers and Specialists
  • Quality Engineers and Specialists
  • Maintenance Engineers

How to run product life tests?

  • What are the service life characteristics of two materials that are alternatives to each other?
  • Does the product meet the reliability specifications?
  • How will the proposed change in design affect product reliability?
  • How much will be the estimated warranty cost for the product?
  • How long will the product shelf life be?
  • How long is the service life of a part or a component?
  • What percentage of the products will fail before the warranty period expires?
  • How is the warranty period of the parts that have to wait in the warehouse affected?
  • How many products should be tested until they fail/get damaged?
  • We should seek answers to these questions by using reliability analysis techniques.

Learning Outcomes

  • Basic concepts and applicable areas of reliability methods
  • Understanding the characteristics and uses of distributions
  • Determining the sample size,
  • Modeling by using the “Smallest Extreme Value” distribution
  • Modeling the service life of the part before failure occurs
  • Reliability estimation of a system with multiple failure modes
  • Analyzing reliability of a repairable system and determine whether repair costs are decreasing, increasing or constant over time,
  • Identification of the items with the highest risk of failure
  • Accelerated life testing
  • Probit analysis for the effect of a stress/stimulus variable on failure.
