We can plan and implement a range of RAMS methodologies and tools within a System Safety / RAM framework (eg. EN50126, MIL-STD-882C/D, MIL-STD-785B), including:

1. Component and equipment level FMEA / FMECA.

2. Equipment reliability predictions using MIL-HDBK-217F, Telcordia, RDF2000, NPRD-95, NSWC/LE1 and other data sources.

3. System reliability modeling—Reliability Block Diagrams (RBD), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Monte-Carlo simulation.

4. System  / Sub-system Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA) & HAZOP studies.

5. Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) analysis.

6. Hazard Log / Risk Register.

7. Probabilistic spares optimisation.

8. Reliability-centred Maintenance. (RCM) and Planned Maintenance Optimisation (PMO)

9. Life failure data analysis eg. Proven-In-Use / Chi-Square, Weibull analysis).


We can also prepare plans and perform independent verifications and validations and audits.

“Reliability engineering is becoming increasingly important for the competitive success of industry. Effective reliability estimation and improvement requires a fairly sophisticated set of skills. While reliability engineers frequently possess these skills, it is often the case that senior leaders and managers in an organization do not”.
