Reliability Engineering (RE) can assist an owner/operator in multiple ways towards improving the performance of their operating asset over its life cycle. This presentation will highlight the fundamental concepts of RE and its uses in industry. Often confused with Maintenance Engineering, RE is actually distinct yet complementary in the sense that it uses more strategic concepts to analyze and quantify the performance of an operating system over time. RE also provides inputs to Risk Models, Root Cause Analysis as well as Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and examples will be provided to illustrate those interactions. This presentation will be as much as possible, interactive with the audience and participants are invited to send in their questions in advance at Andre-Michel Ferrari’s LinkedIn Inbox.
