This certificate teaches students to design for sustainability and reliability of systems during the life-cycle of an operation. by the conclusion they will be able to understand systems reliability, maintainability, and availability analysis (RM&A) and modeling, and apply reliability models for a product or system during its life-cycle: design, production, and warranty. Additionally, students will learn to conduct trade-off analysis to enhance availability and reliability of the system and to develop maintenance concepts that are cost effective and support sustainment of the system.
The courses have an application to all phases of the systems engineering process, including requirements definition through systems design and development. The students will learn the process that starts with RM&A in the initial phases of development, conducting trade-off analysis during the system development phase to optimize reliability and availability of the system. The students will also learn to improve the reliability and availability of a product or a system by modeling and analysis of systems reliability using probability models.
