Design for Reliability – Fundamentals | Training Course

Design for Reliability is a process that encompasses tools and procedures to ensure that a product meets its reliability requirements, under its use environment, for the duration of its lifetime. Design for Reliability is implemented in the design stage of a product to proactively improve product reliability, by seeking to minimise weaknesses in design.

This 1-day course covers the fundamentals of the Design for Reliability process, with the following aims:

  • Introduce Reliability Engineering principles (objectives, terminology, definitions)
  • Describe the elements of a Design for Reliability process and how they work together
  • Provide awareness of typical Reliability Engineering tools that help identify, monitor and manage risks
  • Demonstrate how reliability can be quantified.

Concepts and terminology are first introduced. The types of activities that can help achieve more reliable products and processes, along with some of the various tools that can support these activities, are then discussed.

This course is not intended to provide specific training on tools or techniques. If these are of interest, please review our other Standard Courses or contact us to discuss bespoke training options.

Who Should Attend?

This course is aimed for those working in Engineering Design, who would like an introduction to the subject of Reliability Engineering.


The course does not assume any prior knowledge on the subject of Reliability Engineering.

Audience: Designers, engineers, researchers, students and managers who are currently or may in the future be involved with FEA within their role.

This course is suitable for anyone using FEA software directly, involved in specifying FEA projects or reviewing, checking and interpreting results within FEA reports.

As a fundamentals course, it is assumed that delegates do not have any previous experience. However, it can also serve as a refresher course if you have some existing FEA experience obtained from work or academic studies.


This online course is split into 3 sessions, 2 hours each.

Classroom Training Option

A classroom-based course is also available at one of our venues if preferred to virtual training.
