You will be trained to become a Reliability Engineering professional. Capable of creating reliability and risk analyses of complex systems. Focusing on early Design concepts, these analyses lead to pro-active and solid engineering and management recommendations throughout the entire Product Creation Process. As an expert you will take the lead in projects on the aspect of system Reliability, closely cooperating with the Six Sigma methodologies.
Based on the Holland Innovative experiences in Design for Value projects, this training offers to train you in the analytical Reliability methodologies and system level approaches to ensure a high initial reliability designed into your systems. These pro-active methodologies will identify Project Reliability risks early, quantify these risks, and interrelate the various failure mechanisms within the components. Together this will lead to a complete System Reliability Analysis.
During this training the following analytical methods will be covered: Reliability Block Diagrams, Fault Tree Analysis, Event Trees, Petrinets, including quantifying risks. Furthermore probability calculations, Boolean Algebra, and Monte Carlo simulations will be covered. Design FMEA and Root cause Analysis will be treated extensively, as well as working with Repairable Systems. Cases will be using real-life data, supported by Reliability software. Additional specialised software tools are provided by the teachers. For a more effective learning process, the training can be followed up by participation in the Reliability User Group (first year free).

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 into a VDI Reliability Engineer certification.
The overall Reliability Foundation Program is established according to VDI 4002 in cooperation with the University of Stuttgart, Prof.Dr.-Ing. B. Bertsche. This University is responsible for the quality of the program and is supported by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Braunschweig, and other institutes.
To obtain VDI certification, participants are required to attend the basic foundation modules RF1 and RF2, attend at least two additional reliability foundation modules, succesfully pass theoretical examinations for each attended reliability foundation module and succesfully complete a reliability project. The certification is issued by the University of Stuttgart.
