ReliaSoft G400 – Foundations of Reliability Engineering Data Analysis and Modeling
Whitworth House, 28 Charles Street
- 6th November 2017 - 10th November 2017
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The immensely popular G400 series is composed of Weibull and Life Data Analysis followed by an introduction to key principles in accelerated life testing (ALT), design of experiments, reliability block diagrams (RBDs) and repairable systems modeling.
This training course presents concepts and software tools that you could use to help your organisation to become familiar with the applications for other essential reliability analysis methods, including ALT, DOE, RBDs and repairable systems modeling and understand how life data analysis methodologies can be applied when you need to understand and communicate how a product will perform over time, such as:
- Setting meaningful reliability targets, demonstrating whether an item meets the specification and/or effectively communicating performance estimates to management.
- Identifying whether an item will experience infant mortality and/or wearout and making predictions about performance during the useful life (or warranty) period.
- Evaluating suppliers and/or comparing designs based on reliability. Become familiar with the applications for other essential reliability analysis methods, including ALT, DOE, RBDs and repairable systems modeling. Note that G400A is a truncated version of G400 that covers only the first three days.
The course commences at 9:00am and finishes at approximately 5:00pm.
