Target group:

Engineers, technicians, specialists, managers and executives from the areas of development, testing, design, research, production and quality assurance who wish to deepen their reliability skill-set.

About the topic:

Effective reliability engineering is about knowledge engineering: knowing why you do what you do, knowing that you do it well, and always learning how to do it better.

The Reliability Black Belt® adds specialist tools that are the key to deeper understanding of reliability and causes of failure.

Training procedure and goal:

The Reliability Black Belt® comprises the second module in the qualification as a Reliability Engineer. This module builds upon the structure provided by the Reliability Green Belt®. The Reliability Black Belt® adds specialized tools from the fields of Reliability Management, Design of Experiments, Durability Modeling, Repairable Systems and RAM/LCC; that allow development of greater understanding and improved decision-making.

The goal of this module is to train specialists who can independently solve complex problems and work on challenging issues in your organization. The Reliability Black Belt® is thus also able to professionally handle organizational and project-specific interfaces (e.g. Production, Sales and Purchasing).
