Course Description

Learn how a Reliability Engineer (RE) drives the value assets can deliver by overseeing equipment life cycle performance from concept through disposal. In Reliability Engineering Excellence, REs learn to build a business case for reliability, design reliability into a system or process before it’s built, identify operating risks and solve problems in all areas of asset management. Life Cycle Institute reliability experts facilitate class activities around system reliability modeling, ISO 55000-based assessment questions and how to use leading and lagging indicators to manage a reliability program.

Class participants examine the major components of an asset management plan, justify a capital project and discuss asset data management concerns. By the end of this course you will be equipped to build and sustain a strategic Reliability Engineering program to achieve your organization’s reliability goals. Special emphasis will be placed on designing for reliability, life cycle asset management, life cycle costing, reliability and statistical analysis, measuring reliability program improvements and building organizational support for reliability.
