REC - Work Product

Reliability Engineering Certification

Reliability Engineering Certification Work Product Information

The final step in achieving your Reliability Engineering Certification (REC) is completing the work product. The work product component allows you to demonstrate to yourself, your organization and your peers your competency in the real-world application of reliability engineering principles.

Using the tools and templates provided by the Life Cycle Institute you will choose a system in your facility and perform the following activities:

  1. A criticality ranking on at least 10 system assets
  2. A Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) for one critical system asset’s primary function
  3. Root cause analysis (RCA) on one failure mode to determine all of the possible causes. You must defend your RCA tool of choice.
  4. Propose a predictive maintenance technology approach that could predict or mitigate deterioration.

You will compile the results of these activities into a comprehensive report and present your work product to a qualified reliability engineer for review and scoring.

Following successful completion of the work product you will be able to use the REC title designation after your name.
