System Reliability Analysis Course | V-Model and Systems Engineering

Course Duration: 3 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two or three course covers reliability program concepts, design and analysis methods, and test and evaluation approaches. This course is ideal for persons with newly assigned responsibilities in the reliability and maintainability area, as well as managers who want to increase their awareness of the payoffs of different approaches and techniques.

The attendee will gain an appreciation of the importance of reliability to system and product success, whether it's a military or a commercial application. They will understand the practices that are appropriate to apply for different development situations as well as the basics of implementing the practices cost effectively.

With the advent of "V-Model" and Systems Engineering in the Automotive, Aerospace, Semiconductor, & Medical Device industries, Reliability Analysis is an important topic.
