NEW COURSE IN DEVELOPMENT. Recent working groups and task forces have recognized DOD’s historic under- performance in reliability goals and have implemented policies to improve sustainment. This 5 day course covers the policies, guidance, and methods to improve the reliability program across the acquisition life cycle. Focus is on both the proactive approach of designing reliability into the system up front (Design for Reliability) and the reactive Reliability Growth modeling. Emphasis is on understanding basic reliability and Reliability Growth principles and using tools available to the practitioner to plan, assess, track, and project reliability. This hands- on workshop will use software to reinforce analytical methods presented with demonstrations and exercises. Students will be able to construct the Reliability Growth curves now required in Test and Evaluation Master Plans for major systems.
