Using Reliability Block Diagrams in System Design

A reliability block diagram (RBD) illustrates how individual components contribute to the overall reliability of a system. RBDs are extremely useful in achieving reliability goals, particularly for complex, multi-component systems. In this presentation, Bill Meeker, PhD, Professor of Statistics at Iowa State University, discusses examples based on personal computer and automobile brake systems to help you gain a better understanding of:

  • How RBDs can be used to compute the reliability of multi-component systems.
  • How to obtain reliability information on the individual components of a system.
  • Common system structures and implications for calculating their reliability.
  • How modern software can be used to simplify the construction of RBDs and obtain insights from them.
