... a 1-day course for engineering managers:
The objective of this course is to provide engineering managers (including systems engineers, project managers, quality managers, logistics managers and maintenance managers) with an overview of modern reliability engineering. The course refers to conventional wisdom on reliability to indicate that many “industry standard” practices are incorrect and misleading. It argues that the focus of reliability engineering should be on value adding “engineering” activities, and not on “accounting” activities. Reliability can be defined as the “absence of failures". The emphasis of reliability engineering should therefore be on "failure prevention" during development and production, and not on "failure correction" during operations. Course topics have been selected to show “what” should be done to improve reliability, and not on “how” to perform individual reliability tasks.
