Reliability Engineering: Concepts, Theories, and Application

Published: 30 March 2022

This course is designed to provide the participants, with the concepts, principles, and process knowledge of reliability engineering and management. It over views the elements of system performance assessment, describes the reliability theories and their applications for defining the optimal requirements and dimensioning of a robust product during design and development phase.

You get to learn

On successful completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the fundamental concepts, principles, and process knowledge of reliability engineering and management.
  • Employ appropriate reliability techniques and methods to identify and prevent dominating failure modes; to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of the occurrence at a reduced cost.
  • Perform both parametric and non-parametric reliability models to analyze failure and test data to estimate the reliability of both new designs and existing products.
  • Perform Reliability Growth Analysis and assess the improvement in the reliability of a product due to changes in the product's design.
  • Design and plan for an effective reliability demonstration test to determine whether the product will meet a specified reliability goal and time.
  • Determine optimal reliability-based maintenance strategies to fulfill system functions
  • Acquire understanding about Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action System
  • Define the building blocks of reliability requirements management
  • Gain knowledge about the fundamentals of warranty modeling and management.


This course comprises of four independent module as follows:

  • Module 1: Reliability Modeling and Prediction
  • Module 2: Mechanisms of Failure and Associated Physics of Failure Models
  • Module 3: Reliability Engineering Design Practices
  • Module 4: Reliability testing
