Prequisites

Learning objectives

  • Identify critical components (or failure modes) and determine the most effective ways to improve system performance through design improvements and/or maintenance planning
  • Use simulation to facilitate decision-making in a variety of areas, such as scheduling maintenance, planning for spares, identifying bottlenecks in production throughput and estimating life cycle costs

Topics included

  • How to define a system as a reliability model
  • Reliability block diagram (RBD) configurations and fault tree gates and events
  • Advanced/complex RBD configurations
  • Introduction to time dependency in reliability modeling
  • Optimum reliability allocation
  • Introduction to repairable system analysis
  • Advanced RBD constructs
    • Modeling block dependency
    • Modeling standby redundancy
    • Nodes, containers, encapsulation, mirroring
  • Analysis to identify system improvement opportunities
  • Introduction to preventive maintenance principles
  • Advanced simulation: adding crews, spare parts and maintenance strategies
  • Use of appropriate metrics for system analysis
  • Throughput analysis: bottleneck identification and backlog processing
  • Introduction to reliability phase diagrams
