Reliability-Centered Maintenance (EAS437)

Synopsis

It will provide students with an understanding on how maintenance programmes are developed and managed both in the civilian and military aerospace sectors. Designing and evaluating reliability-centered maintenance systems will be studied. Local case studies will be used in assessments and seminar discussions.

Level: 4
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every July

Topics
