Reliasoft: Pre-ECC TechDay

Concepts of Reliability Engineering Simulation

ESTEQ and HBM Prenscia present an exclusive Reliasoft TechDay as part of our Engineering Community Conference. This TechDay will be presented by Rob Coles and will discuss an RCM simulation approach to building, optimizing and understanding your Maintenance Strategy.

This workshop with tutorials will illustrate how to use component Life-Data Analysis which feeds into Reliability Centred Maintenance simulation to help better understand why a reactive “firefighting” maintenance strategy may not be an optimal solution.

We will discuss and illustrate how to use RCM Analysis to critically evaluate your maintenance activities and build a preventative or predictive strategy depended upon the outcome of an FMEA or FMECA.
