Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM)

This is an Online Training (OLT) course. Professionals who take this course will be able to understand the relationship between reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) as a critical factor in design, performance, cost, and sustainment. The course addresses the cross-disciplinary actions of Program Management, Systems Engineering, Test & Evaluation and both acquisition logistics and sustainment to evaluate the impact of reliability and maintainability decisions. Stressing a conceptual approach, the course presents basic reliability, availability and maintainability terminology and engineering practices. It discusses current legislative and DoD policy that have invigorated systems engineering and logistics engineering processes to improve the requirements process, minimize risk through reliability growth programs and ensure effectiveness and suitability through developmental and operational test and evaluation.
