This course teaches students how to assure reliability performance from systems. This includes how to specify reliability performance characteristics using both consumer and producer risk profiles. It also covers how reliability can be demonstrated (and assured) through both traditional acceptance testing methodologies and more proactive reliability growth strategies. This course will also cover how reliability performance can be assured through performance based logistics (PBL) or performance based contracting (PBC) frameworks. Other areas include specific activities that can have positive, if not always quantifiable, effects on reliability performance. This includes design for reliability (DFR) activities such as reliability allocation, highly accelerated life testing (HALT), failure mode, effect and criticality analysis (FMECA) and failure reporting and corrective action systems (FRACAS).
