SE3321: Reliability Management and Data Systems - NPS Online
The course focuses on the practical aspects of reliability analysis and management. Reliability aspects and functions are explained and illustrated using examples and calculus-level mathematics. Topics include: basic tools and methods of reliability for developing complex systems including electronic components, mechanical components, and software; data needs for effective reliability analysis and how to design and implement systems to acquire and store that data; and the principles and practices for developing cost-effective dependable (reliability and availability) systems. Case studies are used to illustrate the material. Prerequisites: None.
