#### Math of Reliability

*Introduction
to the Math of Reliability* is a workshop for scientists, chemists,
troubleshooters, and engineers who wish to understand the mathematics
behind Reliability calculations. Most of the math is done by hand.

Benefits of the Workshop

- You will know how to create a "bathtub" curve by hand.
- You will be able to calculate distribution parameters, using Maximum Likelihood Estimation, by hand.
- You will be able to calcuate Arrhenius acceleration by hand.
- You will be able to use a computer to perform a Monte Carlo Analysis.
- You will be able to use a computer to perform a Bootstrap Analysis.

In 2 days you will learn

- How to use Maximum Likelihood Estimation to calculate distribution parameters.
- How to calculate uncertainties in your parameters and predictions.
- How to create a "bathtub" curve.
- How to calculate Arrhenius acceleration factors.
- How to calculate Cost Per Unit Time for equipment maintenance applications.
- How to use censored data.

This is What Happens During the Training

- You will review basic principles of calculus and matrix mathematics.
- You will create several distribution curves and a "bathtub" curve by hand.
- You will learn to calculate distribution parameters and their confidence limits by hand.
- You will learn to perform Monte Carlo Anlysis and Bootstrap Analysis using a computer.
- You will learn to calculate acceleration factors using an Arrhenius model.
- You will learn to calculate optimal times for equipment maintenance.
