Learning Objectives

  • Learn the basics of Availability Workbench™; navigation, layout, basic grid function, importing.
  • Discover the explanation of MTBF and its flaws, leading into the strengths of the Weibull distribution and which distribution to apply.
  • Gain the expertise of analysing failure (and suspension) data using the Weibull module.
  • See first-hand how limited data can still be used for providing maintenance justifications.

Key Learnings

  • How to use the Weibull module of Availability Workbench™ and an introduction of the whole suite.
  • Participate in real world exercises using failure (and suspension) data in the Weibull module.
  • Linking the Weibull distribution to the logical Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) approach.

Why you should attend:

  • Interested in Isograph’s Availability Workbench™ and want to see and learn how to use it.
  • Lots of failure data and non-failure data but not sure where to start
  • Limited failure data and not sure where to start
  • Want to bring actual failure data analysis into an RCM or FMECA study

Day 1

  • Analysing failure data. Utilizing MTBF & MTTR and explaining the flaws.
  • Introducing the Weibull distribution and its benefits for Reliability data analysis. The importance of analysis at a failure mode level and applying the corresponding Weibull shape.
  • Practical exercises analysing failure and suspensions data within the Weibull module. How to analyse with limited failure data. How to be more efficient with failure analysis.
  • Importing failure data to speed up analysis.
