From 2012

This 75-minute Webinar first identifies selected typical space system failures and their causes. Failure analyses includes the Weibull distribution and its failure rate, mean time to failure, hazard function reliability (survival) function, and conditional, reliability function. Mitigation techniques discussed includes burn in and risk management techniques that includes failure identification, fault tree analyses, event tree analyses, failure modes and effects analyses, failure modes and effects analyses, and risk matrices.

Learning Objectives
  • Understanding Spacecraft Failures
  • Understanding Failure Analyses
  • Understanding Risk Management
  • Understanding Failure Identification
  • Understanding Failure Modes and Effects Analysis
  • Understanding Failure Modes, Effects, and Criticality Analysis
  • Understanding the Risk Matrix
Who Should Attend

This course is a must for technical and management personnel who wish to gain an understanding of techniques that can be implemented to minimize premature failure of space systems.
