Design for Reliability
Workshop M-702

DESCRIPTION:

This program covers a complete understanding of Design for Reliability. It includes developing a full appreciation of the need to design for reliability. The cost and consequences associated with unreliable products is covered. The basic theory of reliability is covered including many of the mathematical and statistical explanations. The tools available to design more reliable products are then presented with ample opportunity to use the tools.

OBJECTIVES:

To fully understand how to design products that are more reliable.

AUDIENCE:

Designers, Engineers and Engineering Management

PREREQUISITES:

No prerequisites to this class

EXPECTED RESULTS:

Attainment of the organization's Quality, Reliability, and/or Cost Reduction Goals

WORKSHOP DURATION:

4 days with 3 additional coaching days


First Day

Reliability simulatio

Normal curve

Cp, the Cpk

Statistical contributions

The bathtub curve

Mean-Time-Before-Failure (MTBF) and system reliability calculations


Second Day

Definition of system and environment

Architecture, functional and system mapping

Component selection criteria

MTBF allocation

The design application

  • Definitions
  • Architecture
  • System mapping
  • MTBF allocation

Introduction to Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Fault Tree Analysis


Third Day

Applying the Failure Mode Effects Analysis to the design application

Introduction of:

  • Part selection trade-offs
  • Initial NSP identification
  • Analytical stress analysis/thermal analysis
  • Reliability growth


Fourth Day

The racecar simulation

Team action plan

Applying the following to a current design:

  • Part selection trade-offs
  • Initial NSP identification
  • Analytical stress analysis/thermal analysis
  • Reliability growth

Planning for follow on visits and wrap-up


Follow on Coaching Sessions -- (Three -- one per month)

Review progress in implementing the design for reliability tools learned during the training session.
