Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) | Introduction
The aim of this 2 day course is to introduce students to RAM management frameworks, particular in the way they relate to organisational goals and objectives. The key focus of this course is to understand how specific RAM activities support and enhance organisational performance. This focus includes concepts that allow organisational decision makers and managers to incorporate these activities in an informed manner into strategic programs. This course also covers approaches to measuring organisational RAM maturity, and how steps can be put in place to realise costed benefits for all RAM activities. The linkages between RAM and Systems Engineering will also be covered.
Duration: 2 days

Dr. Jackson received his Ph.D. in Reliability Engineering from the University of Maryland’s Center of Risk and Reliability. He is currently the Acting Director of the Center of Reliabiltiy and Resilience Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. He has had an extensive career as a Senior Reliability Engineer in the Australian Defence Force, and is the Director of Acuitas Reliability Pty Ltd. He has supported many complex and material systems developed their reliability performance, and assisted in providing reliability management frameworks that support business outcomes. He has also led initiatives in complementary fields such as systems engineering and performance based management frameworks (PBMFs). He is currently investigating new research concepts that include machine learning informed reliability engineering, dynamic Bayesian belief networks (DBBNs) and organizational value decision making.
