This is the first session of the series "Best Practices in Maintainability: Practical Meaning and Applications of Reliability, Risk, and Redundancy". This three–part series will be presented from the primary perspective of maintenance and maintainability. It will be provided by a dually certified CRE and CMRP with many years of experience in both the design and maintenance sectors. The webinars should be of interest to reliability professionals who practice primarily in product development and design and who wish to have a better understanding of the more practical aspects of reliability, risk, and redundancy in maintaining and restoring systems and equipment. The webinars should be of equal interest to reliability professional who practice in maintenance but may be relatively new in understanding how the overarching concepts apply. The subject matter is aimed at an intermediate level. Session 1. : Fundamentals of Maintenance and Reliability A practical overview of reliability and maintenance basic principles will be provided. Some key tops include: maintenance-specific reliability concepts and calculations; failure modes; P-F curves; factors influencing preventative and predictive maintenance program development; PM optimization; relevance of Reliability Centered Maintenance approaches; and key performance indicators. Foundational definitions also will be provided as a refresher in touch topics as: reliability and risk; reliability and quality; reliability, availability, and dependability; and maintainability, serviceability, and repairability. The session will provides insights into the role of maintainability issues and reliability-based approaches to more effectively manage systems and repairable infrastructure through its lifecycle.
