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 Green Belt® provides a methodical approach to reliability development necessary to meet the complex challenges of today’s systems.

Training procedure and goal:

The Reliability Green Belt® comprises the first of three modules in the qualification as a Reliability Engineer. It is highly relevant to engineers, specialists and managers in other product development and manufacturing roles.

In this module, the most important qualitative and quantitative methods of reliability engineering are covered. The Reliability Green Belt training is deliberately structured to teach the participant when, how and why the individual methods can be applied in the product development process.

The Certified Reliability Green Belt® will be able to implement core reliability tools in the company organization.


There are no prerequisites for this topic. No prior knowledge of reliability engineering is required.

Software requirements:

Each participant must have a laptop with the following software: Microsoft Excel, Adobe Reader and Minitab (Version R15 or above). A demo version of the software Minitab can be downloaded from www.minitab.com.

Examination / certification:

The training will end in all cases with a certificate of participation. Furthermore, participants may elect to take a written examination for a certified Reliability Green Belt® at the end of the course. The certificate will be awarded by the University of Stuttgart and the Institute of Machine Components. The examination is in multiple choice form.
