Reliability Engineering Training:

Reliability Engineering Training Course description

Reliability engineering is the function of analyzing the expected or actual reliability of a product, process or service, and identifying actions to reduce failures or mitigate their effect. Engineers analyzing reliability typically carry out reliability predictions, FMEA or FMECA, design testing programs, monitor and analyze field failures, and suggest design or manufacturing changes. Reliability engineering can be done by reliability engineers, design engineers, quality engineers, or system engineers. The overall goal of reliability engineering is to make your product more reliable in order to reduce repairs, lower costs, and maintain your company’s reputation. To best meet this goal, reliability engineering should be done at all levels of design and production, with all engineers involved.

Tailored Classes

Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff and site’s requirements.
