Reliability Engineering Training 2018 - 2 SessionSubmitted by Anonymous on Wed, 04/18/2018 - 20:56
In an effort to establish a common knowledge baseline for reliability and availability improvement activities for particle accelerators, a study of methods and tools is ongoing in the frame of the FCC and HL-LHC projects, as well as for the existing machines.
One part of this activity is the establishment of a set of common terms and approaches and the creation of an active community with excellence from complementary domains required to perform reliability engineering.
To this end, the initiative foresees a set of introductory trainings for engineers and scientists from all areas of the sector.
The training is developed by the University of Stuttgart (Institut fuer Maschinenelemente), considered a reference in reliability engineering and already engaged in several CERN projects, including FCC and HL-LHC.
A practical part involving a tool on reliability modelling and simulation is performed by the company Ramentor. This company is actively involved in the FCC study to model the availability performance of the LHC to make predictions for FCC .
The course program consists of:
- 1 day introduction to reliability engineering and availability aspects with a focus on particle accelerators
- 1 day introduction to qualitative methods for reliability engineering
- 1 day introduction to probabilistic methods for reliability engineering
- 1 day practical work of reliability and availability modelling and simulation with a software tool
