Reliability Engineering Academy

Basic Training Reliability Engineering

training number: Reliability_S01

Target group:

Engineers, technicians, specialists and executive staff from development, testing, design, research, production, quality assurance and management, as well as purchasing and sales and distribution.

About the topic:

This two-day seminar provides an overview of the various fields of work and methodological approaches in the field of “Reliability Engineering”. The mathematical fundamentals necessary for further understanding are laid on the first day of the seminar. After that come the first steps in calculating system reliability. The second day of the seminar begins with an exercise and the Weibull analysis of complete data. This is followed by the introduction to reliability test planning. The seminar concludes with a look at the analysis methods for the evaluation of censored data sets.
