HI-RF1 Life Data Analysis and Reliability Testing

Predict the reliability of your product based on field and test data 

New products and processes must be developed in short lead times with increasingly higher quality and reliability requirements. As a Reliability Engineer learn how to predict the reliability of the product, draw up test plans and make statistically substantiated recommendations that result in fact-based management decisions.

In this training, the Weibull and Crow-AMSAA statistics, in particular based on the New Weibull Handbook, are taught, as well as a number of reliability testing methods that fit seamlessly into the product creation process. Specifying requirements, drafting a risk analysis, assessing test results at component and system level, life cycle cost, maintenance strategy; in short, reliability-maintainability-safety (RMS) in all its aspects are covered in this training.

A selection of the skills that are learned:

  • Reliability definitions and quantities
  • 2 and 3 parameter Weibull statistics and log normal distribution
  • Predict failure and determine the optimum replacement point
  • Weibayes analysis for small samples – few defects
  • Modeling of repairable systems
  • Reliability growth: quantify and predict
  • Drawing up a reliability validation plan
  • Set up and interpret accelerated lifetime tests (ALT)
  • Reliability DoEs – Design of Experiments

The focus is on the practical applicability of methodologies in reliability analyzes. For a more effective learning process, the training is followed by 4x free participation in the Reliability User Group.

Audience group 
The training is aimed at professionals involved in design, testing, warranty analysis, reliability, project planning, maintenance or inspection.

Due to the success of the Life Data Analysis and Reliability Testing training, an extra training, given by Ronald Schop, has been planned. The training is offered fully remote and online according to the Live Online Interactive Training format (LOIT).
This extra training session consists of the 3 blocks of 2 days, plus an extra return day. This return day will take place as soon as the COVID-19 guidelines allow this. This day will have a separate program in which the deepening of knowledge and networks are central. The day will end with a joint dinner.

Holland Innovative training courses are offered fully remote and online in the Live Online Interactive Training format (LOIT). This development is a logical step in the contact-limiting measures regarding the COVID19 virus and will be offered by Holland Innovative for all courses and workshops in 2020. We are continuously working on innovations in knowledge development: from challenge based learning to electronic learning environment and fully remote. Contact us for more information about LOIT, we are happy to help you.

After completing the full training, participants receive proof of participation

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, successfully pass theoretical examinations for each attended reliability foundation module and successfully complete a reliability project. The certification is issued by the University of Stuttgart.

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.
