Quantitative Reliability Analyses – Practical Approaches:
The purpose of this course is to provide illustrative examples of the more common mathematical calculations and statistical techniques utilized by reliability engineers in the practical performance of their daily activities.
The mathematical and statistical examples illustrated in this course revolve around a single hypothetical case study. In addition to providing a common thread throughout this presentation, it is hoped that by basing all calculations on a single case study, the student will come to understand that individual calculations do not exist in a vacuum. Rather, it will reinforce the notion that each phase of a project is linked to (and affects) other phases, and that conclusions drawn from a calculation are often used to influence design decisions, which may then require that previous analyses and calculations be revisited and updated.
