How to Get Started as a new Reliability Engineer
Companies have high expectations for safety and reliability.
New reliability engineers face significant challenges when trying to meet these challenges. It is important to be guided by the right philosophy and approach and to ask the right questions.
Importance of Reliability Goal and Vision Discussions
Setting reliability targets requires much more than assigning a reliability number.
Reliability targets need to include the intended function of the system or component, the probability of achieving the intended function, the operating conditions and environment, and the time over which reliability needs to be achieved.
Management must be directly involved in developing and communicating the reliability vision and ensuring the necessary steps to achieving reliability are in place.
High-Level Steps to Create Your Reliability Program

This naturally brings certain topics and questions into view: What is a reliability plan and how should it be developed? Which reliability tools should be included in a reliability plan and how are these tools selected?
