This is the third 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 3: Fundamentals of Redundancy: Practical Applications and Limitations Facility and infrastructure owners continue to be under economic pressures related to maximizing the lifecycles of their equipment and avoiding wasted investments. Understanding redundancy and its relationship to achieving reliability and availability is the key component to effective lifecycle analysis and meeting the bigger picture goal of optimizing asset management practices. The participant will gain a better understanding of the practical aspects of redundancy, its impacts on risk and reliability, and the ultimate lifecycles effects on assets and related systems. The presentation will provide an overview of: the different major types of redundancy; the tools and techniques used to analyze redundancy and reliability; practical implications of operations and maintenance practices such as full utilization of duty and standby units and their impact on lifecycle reliability analysis; and the impacts of different systems confirmation of the lifecycle analysis and renewal and replacement (R&R) assumptions related to different systems configurations. Examples will be provided for systems of various industries and in various applications.
