For more than a
decade, ReliaSoft has trained thousands of reliability professionals from
thousands of companies worldwide in both the subject of reliability
and the applicable reliability analysis software tools. Over the
years, these training course offerings have been expanded to include
more than 20 courses in different
and utilizing different tools. As the number of subjects, courses and tools
grew, we realized that we needed to restructure these course offerings to
make it easier for attendees to select a path of instruction that meets
his/her particular needs. To that end, ReliaSoft's
reliability training courses
have been reorganized into four course collections, with the expanded
Master the Subjects, Master the ToolsSM
course collection as the focal point.
- The expanded
Master the Subject, Master the ToolsSM
(MSMT) course collection includes all public training courses that combine
reliability engineering principles and theory with instruction in the
use of ReliaSoft's
standard software tools designed to put that theory into practice.
This includes the Foundations Series, the Advanced Series
and the Specialized Series, which are described below. These
courses are offered in both public and on-site venues.
Reliability Overview Courses collection includes shorter (one day)
sessions designed to introduce basic reliability concepts, benefits and
methodologies to management and a general audience. These courses are
offered in both public and on-site venues.
Selected Topics in Reliability collection includes courses
designed to address specific topics related to quality/reliability.
These courses are offered only
Preparatory Courses collection includes courses that cover basic
background subjects, such as engineering statistics. These courses are
The Expanded MSMT Collection
All courses in the MSMT
collection uniquely combine expert instruction in the theoretical background
needed for each subject as well as the
designed to put the learned theory into practice. Within this collection,
you can choose training courses from three series, specifically:
MSMT Reliability Foundations Series
Reliability Foundations Series is composed of four course sessions
covering basic subjects that will form the foundation for your ongoing
reliability education. The Foundations Series is taught over five
days and begins with an in-depth course on reliability/life data analysis.
This session is the cornerstone for all subsequent MSMT courses. The next
three sessions provide introductions to reliability growth analysis,
quantitative accelerated life testing (QALT) data analysis and system
reliability and maintainability analysis.
MSMT Advanced Reliability Series
MSMT Advanced Reliability Series is a
continuation of, and a detailed expansion into, the
reliability growth, accelerated life testing and system
reliability analysis concepts that were introduced in
the MSMT Foundations Series.
Each advanced course is taught over three days and
provides an in-depth look into the subject along with
hands-on applications using software. The subjects
currently offered are:
- Advanced Reliability Growth and Repairable Systems
- Advanced Quantitative Accelerated Life Testing
- Advanced System Reliability, Maintainability and
MSMT Specialized Series
MSMT Specialized Series includes instruction on specific reliability
subjects and tools, such as FMEA, DOE and others. The subjects currently
- FMEA/FMECA utilizing ReliaSoft's
to support Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality
- RCM utilizing ReliaSoft's
to support Reliability Centered Maintenance.
- Probabilistic Event and Risk Analysis utilizing
ReliaSoft's probabilistic risk analysis and
stochastic event modeling tool, RENO.
- DOE utilizing ReliaSoft's design of experiments
Creating an Educational Path
These reliability education
offerings have been designed to allow you to
select a path of instruction that meets your particular needs. For example,
the MSMT Foundations Series
provides an ideal starting point that will give you a good grasp of basic
reliability theory and tools. From there, you can move on to the MSMT
Advanced Series for expanded coverage of selected subjects and/or choose
specific topics of interest (e.g. FMEA, DOE, etc.) from the MSMT
Specialized Series. If you need a basic introduction to statistical
methods, you can start with the Preparatory Courses collection before
moving on to the MSMT collection. If you are a manager or otherwise
interested in a brief conceptual overview of reliability topics and their
applications within the business world, you can start with the
Reliability Overview Courses collection. In addition, the Selected
Topics in Reliability collection provides individual courses that fit
into any of these educational paths.
