Reliability Engineering

Reliability engineering is an ongoing process that starts at the conceptual phase of product design and continues through all the phases of a product life cycle. The goal is to identify potential reliability problems as early as possible in the product life cycle. Cyient offers the following types of reliability analysis in the aerospace, rail and heavy equipment domains.

  • Qualitative analysis is a component of both the design and process phases. Design failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA) as well as failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) are used during the design phase, while process failure mode and effect analysis (PFMEA) is used during the manufacturing and assembly (process) phase of a component or assembly to assess its reliability.
  • Quantitative analysis involves continuous operations data gathering, constant data analysis, and identification of various reliability drivers. This results in design or manufacturing process modifications, improved prognostics, and better preventive maintenance techniques. Examples include fleet event management, asset management, and shop visit forecasting that help assess a component’s cost of poor quality, mean time between failures, root cause analysis, and mean time to repair using various probabilistic mathematical tools.
