Course Description: System reliability is an important aspect of ensuring the performance and safety of various types of systems. It involves using mathematical models and computer simulations to predict the likelihood of system failure, identify potential weak points, and determine strategies for improving reliability. In this webinar we will discuss several different methods used in system reliability assessment and simulation, including Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), and Markov Analysis. Furthermore, Monte Carlo method, a commonly used technique in system simulation, will be explained in detail. This method allows for the incorporation of uncertainty and variability in the system into reliability prediction.

This 3 hour webinar, which costs $300 per person, will provide a brief introduction of software packages such as ReliaSoft BlockSim, JMP Pro and R, and demonstrate their functions of system reliability simulation. BlockSim is specifically designed for RBDs and FTA. It can model complex systems, perform simulations, reliability predictions, and sensitivity analysis to identify the components that have the greatest impact on system reliability. JMP Pro is a powerful data visualization and statistical analysis tool, which can be used to perform various reliability data analysis, and recently it has expanded its range of functions in reliability test planning and system simulation. R is an open-source software with a wide range of packages available for various types of analysis, including system reliability simulation. It is flexible, can handle large data sets and has a large community of users and resources.

Overall, this webinar aims to provide valuable insights into system designs by utilizing simulation tools so that potential reliability issues and the ways to mitigate them can be systematically investigated. Bottom of Form
