Design and Control of System Reliability, Maintainability and Supportability

This training course focuses on design and control of system reliability, maintainability and supportability, from design to disposal.

The objective of all logistics engineering is to find solutions that offer a system that has the ”right” dependability with respect to all explicit requirements including the budget limits. If explicit requirements are not available, the solution should be a cost-effective balancing of the operational effectiveness with the life cycle costs for the user. That balance should be considered in all phases of the system’s life.

The course covers the following:

  • How to control the dependability of a system.
  • How to specify the requirements.
  • How to analyze how different design solutions, e.g. redundancies, affect the dependability and logistics requirements.
  • How to measure and follow-up dependability.
  • How to control dependability in a project.
  • How to increase dependability and operational effectiveness.

The lectures are supported by a large number of exercises.

Today there are a number of software packages for computing and analyzing dependability. During the course the participants will use some common software tools for computing block diagrams, fault trees and Markov chains. The course will also cover tools for analysis of reliability development – e.g. MaDCAT. Case studies of successful project dependability engineering will also be covered.

Who should attend

The course is suitable for anyone involved in a project where operational effectiveness is key to overall project success. The course is also recommended for anyone working in a field where the operational effectiveness of the technical equipment is of high importance.
