System Reliability and Maintainability Analysis

Learn system reliability/maintainability and related analyses using ReliaSoft BlockSim

Required prerequisite course - Fundamentals of Reliability or RAM for Asset Management

Course overview - 3 days

In System Reliability and Maintainability Analysis you will learn how to build simple to complex reliability models using ReliaSoft BlockSim software. In this course you will explore advanced concepts and applications for system reliability/maintainability analysis and optimization utilizing a reliability block diagram (RBD) or fault tree analysis (FTA) approach.

Software used

You will use ReliaSoft BlockSim software with hands-on practice and case study analysis.
Learning objectives

  • Identify critical components (or failure modes) and determine the most effective ways to improve system performance through design improvements and/or maintenance planning
  • Use simulation to facilitate decision-making in a variety of areas, such as scheduling maintenance, planning for spares, identifying bottlenecks in production throughput and estimating life cycle costs
