The students know the methods of reliability and test engineering and the components used. Furthermore, they are able to independently carry out test planning, test execution and test interpretation for a given problem on a test bench.

The following contents are taught in the lecture:

  • Relevance of reliability and test engineering in the industry.
  • Overview of test equipment
  • Test strategies and statistical test planning
  • Testing with hypotheses
  • Reliability models

The implementation of test planning, test execution and test interpretation on a demonstrator test bench is part of the practical session subsequent to the lecture (See also Event 2145351: Workshop for Reliability and Test Engineering)
