Design for Reliability is a process that encompasses tools and procedures to ensure that a product meets its reliability requirements, under its use environment, for the duration of its lifetime. Design for Reliability is implemented in the design stage of a product to proactively improve product reliability, by seeking to minimise weaknesses in design.

This 1-day course covers the fundamentals of the Design for Reliability process, with the following aims:

    • Introduce Reliability Engineering principles (objectives, terminology, definitions).
    • Describe the elements of a Design for Reliability process and how they work together.
    • Provide awareness of typical Reliability Engineering tools that help identify, monitor and manage risks.
    • Demonstrate how reliability can be quantified.

Concepts and terminology are first introduced. The types of activities that can help achieve more reliable products and processes, along with some of the various tools that can support these activities, are then discussed.

This course is not intended to provide specific training on tools or techniques. If these are of interest, please review our other Standard Courses or contact us to discuss bespoke training options.
