This course is an introduction to systems reliability, maintainability, supportability and availability (RMS/A) modeling and analysis with an application to systems requirements definition and systems design and development. Both deterministic and stochastic models are covered. Emphasis is placed on RMS/A analyses to establish a baseline for systems performance and to provide a quantitative basis for systems trade-offs.
To provide students with an understanding of systems analysis and optimization as a basis for product and service engineering and development decisions based on tradeoffs involving multiple alternatives and uncertainty, for application in industry and government as well as in other engineering courses.
