RAMS Program implementation for Aerospace Industry in Austria 2019


RAMS program Implementation for Aerospace Industry: The Flight Simulator Project

This project started in the end of 2018 and will finish it first phase in February 2019 for a World Class Company in Austria. The objective was to review the RAMS methods implementation based on the reliability engineering best  practices in order to support the design and RAMS requirement achievement, verification and validation. During the project, the following methods were reviewed and discussed:

  •  FMEA;
  • Reliability and Maintainability prediction;
  • RAM analysis;
  • Preliminary Hazard Analysis;
  • System hazard Analysis;
  • Functional Hazard Analysis
  • And SIL analysis.

Technical environment:

  

Softwares: Item toolkit, Blocksim and Weibul++ (Reliasoft).

The next project phase will implement the RAMS program based on the best Reliability and Safety Engineerign practices concerning procedures, training and analysis implementation for the new projects.
