Design for Reliability (DFR)

Learn DFR for product development processes

Course overview - 3 days

Design for Reliability (DFR) provides a process framework that can be customized to meet your organization’s specific needs. It teaches how to execute each step in the DFR process through hands-on examples of the methods and tools used to support product development. Students are also exposed to how DFR is applied by the different organization functional team members throughout the product development process.

Following the Design for Reliability process with hands-on, instructor lead examples, you will learn what DFR is and be introduced to the methodologies and tools that enable the DFR process.
Learning objectives
  • Gain an understanding of the methods, terms and metrics used in reliability, when to apply reliability tools during the product development life cycle and the associated benefits of each
  • Learn a holistic DFR process for product/system design environments and how to leverage the benefits of this process with the practical application of the ReliaSoft platform
  • Evaluate your strengths in each methodology, which will serve as a guide for any additional skills you may need to acquire or augment

Topics included:

  • Overview of Design for Reliability
  • The DFR process and how it aligns to the product development process
  • Where and what methods and tools are commonly used in DFR

Who should attend?

This course can be a great first class for those design, test and development professionals that want to gain a better understanding of what reliability engineering is, what methods and tools are used by reliability engineers, and where it fits in their product development process.

This course is also designed for engineering leaders that want to understand how to initiate or improve reliability in their organization and can be a great benchmarking baseline for assessing their current reliability programs.
