Reliability Analysis for Non-Repairable Systems Training

Reliability Analysis for Non-Repairable Systems Training is a 3-day training designed for those who want a comprehensive training in the theory and practice of Reliability Analysis for Non-Repairable Systems. This 3-day course is designed for program managers, systems analysts, system engineers, procurement, reliability engineers and professional working in the area of system acquisition, operations, maintenance and sustainability.

It is important to understand the type of system being analyzed or designed and use the appropriate reliability methods and tools to match the system needs.

Participants will learn about analysis of non-repairable systems compared to repairable systems. Along with reliability analysis, availability, maintainability, and serviceability, modeling methods of non-repairable systems will be discussed.


Engineers, analysts, and managers who want to get familiarization with reliability analysis and statistics tools, methods and techniques applied to non-repairable Systems.
