ENG 0860 Planning for R&M Engineering
Students will learn how to conduct Reliability & Maintainability (R&M) engineering planning activities across the acquisition lifecycle. Starting in the material solution analysis phase, students will develop R&M requirements. As systems mature through the acquisition process, students will develop R&M planning documents including reliability growth curves and other R&M planning products. The course goes on to cover how R&M planning supports related program plans such as the Test and Evaluation Master Plan and the Systems Engineering Plan. Finally, the course describes the preparation and use of the Reliability Availability Maintainability and Cost (RAM-C) Rationale Report through the Engineering and Manufacturing development phase and into production and deployment.
