Will be responsible to provide reliability assessment of components and systems, leading to robust qualitative and quantitative evaluation of frequency of failure.
Thoroughly identify relevant risks like potential conditions, events, human error, failure modes, failure mechanics and root causes by using reliability improvement tools based on statistics (like MTBF) or physics of failure (like FEA , DOE) along with reliability testing and accelerated testing (like HALT and HASS).
Propose mitigations like design changes, maintenance cycles, trainings by which risks can be lowered and controlled for at an acceptable level.
Get agreement on final, acceptable risk levels, possibly based on cost and benefit analysis.
Will also be responsible for creating reliability model for different component and systems. Estimation of input parameter for these models like failure rates or mean time to repair (MTTR) the system for a failure.
Estimation of output reliability parameters at system and part level with emphasis on calculation of target setting like mean time between failure (MTBF) and warranty costs.
Closely work with application, analysis, laboratory, design, After market, Engineering, and sales teams. Extract information while collaboratively working with these team and develop meaningful reliability models.
PRINCIPLE DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The primary responsibility is to determine the reliability of components, equipment, and processes. Focus on areas such as loss elimination, risk management and life cycle asset management
Find potential failures and identify the root causes and underlying reasons for such potential issues. Seek continual improvements in all the processes and products
Will be responsible for collecting numbers and data mining, which will be used for analyzing key data metrics from processes or components.
Using this create statistical analysis, charts, drawings, and reports to illustrate and showcase potential issues within a product lifecycle or business process and how to improve it.

g., function FMEA, FHA or FFA), Testability analysis, Human error analysis and Manual screening
Implement Design for reliability (DfR) in the design stage of product as a process, encompassing tools and procedures to ensure that a product meets its reliability requirements for the duration of its lifetime.
Establish test procedures and perform reliability testing.
Use reliability prediction and improvement tools like statistical based approach (i.e. MTBF calculations)
Use physics of failure approach to understand static and dynamic failure mechanisms with the use of modern Finite element Analysis software.
Define reliability testing procedures and parameters for components, subsystems, and systems
Will be responsible for accelerated life testing (ALT) like Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screen (HASS).
Should be able to define the procedure, extract the data, discover the failure modes, and predict the normal field life from these tests.
Collectively work with application, analysis, laboratory, design, After market, Engineering, and sales teams. Extract information while collaboratively working with these team and develop meaningful reliability models.
