Reliability, Availability & Maintainability (RAM) are becoming very important aspects for the Product and Process Industries worldwide. The customers are well informed about the RAM’s requirements, and demanding certain target values for these probabilities. Considering the fact, that the Reliability Predictions are useful for the companies in the project bid stage itself to have a clear understanding of the design parameters and the goal setting gaps.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 3 Full days programme on “Reliability Engineering – Concepts, Calculations, Techniques & Tools” for designers, R&D Engineers and Quality personnel.

Various techniques and tools are required to be practised in the industry today to keep up with the pace. This program is designed to introduce these tools and techniques to the participants, and they can be able to do calculations, Plots and estimates as per the end client requirements.


Key Takeaways

After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to –

  1. Understand about the basics of Reliability Engineering.
  2. Understand about various types of Tools & Techniques used in Reliability Engineering.
  3. Understand and apply Reliability Prediction for both Electronics & Mechanical Systems.
  4. Calculate Failure rates & MTBF
  5. Understand various Lifetime Distributions & to perform Life Data Analysis.
  6. Understand about the basics of Maintainability & Availability.
