About the course Life Data Analysis and Reliability Testing.

New products and processes need to be developed more quickly than ever, with increasing quality and reliability requirements. Learn how you, as a reliability engineer, can predict the reliability of your product, set up test plans and make statistically-based recommendations to support fact-based management decisions.

This course is based on the New Weibull Handbook. It addresses the Weibull and the Crow-AMSAA statistics as well as a number of reliability test methods that will seamlessly fit in the product creation process.

Reliability-maintainability-safety (RMS) will be covered in all aspects, including specifying requirements, establishing risk analyses, evaluating test results at component and system level, calculating life cycle costs and maintenance strategy.

Course: Life Data Analysis and Reliability Testing.

Outcome

You will be trained to become a professional life data analyst and reliability test engineer. You will be able to make in-depth reliability analysis based on warranty, test or field data, to predict the failure and to make fact-based management recommendations.

Practical information.

For whom

The course aims at professionals concerned with design, testing, warranty analysis, reliability, project planning, maintenance, or inspection.

Certificate

The Reliability Foundation Program is a post-graduate education, focusing on the practical aspects of Reliability Engineering. The program has been developed in accordance with VDI 4002 Reliability guidelines in collaboration with the University of Stuttgart and consists of several modules that will result in a VDI Reliability Engineer certification.

 

DfR Green Belt certification

Attending the RF1 module, passing the exam and completing 1 project successfully leads to the DfR Greenbelt certification. If you want to take the exam during the planned exam days, the costs for the theory exam are € 350 per participant. If you want to take the theory test at another time, the costs are € 500 per participant. You can register by sending an email to academy@holland-innovative.nl. Please state clearly which exam you want to participate in.

 

CRE certification

To obtain CRE certification (Certified Reliability Engineer), participants are required to attend the modules RF1 and RF2, attend at least two additional Reliability Foundation modules, successfully pass theoretical examinations for each attended Reliability Foundation module and successfully complete three reliability projects in total. The CRE certification is issued by the University of Stuttgart.
