June 9th Reliability Class!!


Instructor: Mike Heaney, Ph.D., CQE

The focus of this class will be to learn Reliability and Maintainability concepts (CQE Body of Knowledge, III. Product, Process and Service Design, E. Reliability and Maintainability). The class objective is for participants to learn concepts and be able to answer and solve CQE exam questions on this topic.

Class Outline:

  1. Predictive and preventive maintenance tools

Describe and apply the tools and techniques used to maintain and improve process and product reliability.

  1. Reliability and maintainability indices

Review and analyze indices such as mean time to failure (MTTF), mean time between failures (MTBF), mean time to repair (MTTR), availability, and failure rate.

  1. Reliability models

Identify, define, and distinguish between the basic elements of reliability models such as exponential, Weibull, and bathtub curve.  Learn how to calculate system reliability for a system with subsystems in series or parallel or both.

  1. Reliability/Safety/Hazard Assessment Tools

Define, construct, and interpret the results of failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis (FMECA), and fault tree analysis (FTA).
