IE 517 - Reliability of Lean Systems

3 Credit Hours
Course is divided into two major components. First half of the course will focus on introducing the students to the concepts of reliability and maintainability and the impact of lean on the reliability of complex systems. The concepts of reliability engineering are utilized to address lean system failures, including equipment failures, human failures, material failures and scheduling failures. Will develop the ability to design systems that are both lean and reliable. The second half of the course will introduce students to specific case studies of systems failures and ask student to develop solutions by considering different dimensions including financial, technical feasibility, risk, safety, security and others. Multi criteria decision making methodologies will be presented to allow students to make decisions when different criteria lead to conflicting solutions.
(RE) Prerequisite(s): 516.
Recommended Background: Background in lean and reliability.
