Risk and Reliability Engineering Training

Course structure

The total length of course is five days and consists of several theoretical, practical workshops and case study sessions as well as tutorial and software training.

What you will learn

On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify and analyse the concepts and principals of risk and reliability engineering and their potential applications to different engineering problems.
  • Assess and analyse appropriate approaches to the collection and interpretation of data in the application of risk and reliability engineering methods.
  • Evaluate and select appropriate techniques and tools for qualitative and quantitative risk analysis and reliability assessment.
  • Analyse and evaluate failure distributions, failure likelihood and potential consequences, and develop solutions for control/mitigation of risks.

Core content

  • Introduction and Fundamentals of Risk Management and Reliability Engineering.
  • Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) Analysis, system duty cycle, breakdown/shutdown, MTTF/MTBF/MTTR, survival, failure/hazard rate.
  • Quantitative Risk Analysis: basic statistics, distributions of failure, probability of failure, consequences of failure, Monte-Carlo Simulation (MCS).


  • Workshop 1: Basic statistics and failure probability distributions (e.g. Poisson, Exponential, Weibull and Normal).
  • Qualitative Risk Analysis (Check-lists, risk matrix, Pareto analysis, FTA, ETA).


  • Workshop 2: FTA/ETA.
  • Risk Analysis of Mega-Projects.
  • Risk Mitigation (acceptance, reduction, ignorance, transfer).
  • Failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis (FMEA/FMECA).


  • Workshop 3: FMEA/FMECA.
  • Regulations/Standards/ Hazards Assessment.
  • Hazard and operability study (HAZOP) Analysis.


  • Workshop 4: HAZOP.
  • Systems modelling using Reliability Block Diagrams, minimal cut-set (MCS).
  • Series and parallel systems, k-out-of-n systems, active and passive redundancies, cold and hot stand-by.


  • Workshop 5: System Reliability (examples from wind turbines, subsea manifolds, pipes, jacket structures, power distribution networks, civil infrastructures).
  • Structures’ Reliability: First Order and Second Order Moments.
  • Damage accumulation and modelling of time-dependent reliability.
  • Asset Integrity Management (AIM).
  • Introduction to Inspection, Maintenance and Repair (IMR).
  • Introduction to Condition Monitoring (CM) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM).
