Reliability Engineering

Unit Ten Engineering can provide Reliability Engineering support throughout a product’s lifecycle, from Concept through to Decommissioning, however our main strength is Reliability Improvement

Reliability in Design

We can provide assistance all aspects of Reliability in Design:

  • Reliability Apportionment / Disruption Requirement Flowdown
  • Reliability Modelling:
    1. Statistical based on Previous products and postulated improvements
    2. Pseudo-statistical where failure data maybe inaccurate orotherwise not immediately suitable
    3. Qualitative models / ‘Pedigree Declarations’ where family traits can be exploited
  • Reliability Assessment – Design, System and Process FMEAs and Reliability Block Diagrams to understand important Failure modes
  • Design Review – Critical Review of Design examining expected integrity of architecture and components with recommendations to improve robustness.
  • Build Up of Claim – Usage of existing data and knowledge to make early equipment reliability claims with confidence

Testing and Product Development

  • Reliability Test Planning, Specification and Oversight:
    1. Highly Accelerated Testing methods
    2. Incremental Approach to Testing
    3. Accelerated Testing
    4. Burn-in, Reliability Development Growth Testing
  • Test,  Analyse and Fix (TAAF) – ‘mid test design improvement’
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Lasix cost for dogs

In Service Monitoring / Troubleshooting

Once in service, we can call on our experiences to predict and react to operation affecting failures, using a wide variety of probabilistic and other tools to determine the nature of failure and develop action plans to recover performance, including the implementation of modified equipment or operating practices where necessary.
