Course objectives
Main aim of this courese is understand and master fundamental theoretical knowledges of the technical system reliability theory. The lessons are specialized in particular into following topics:
theory of the technical systems reliability,
theoretical and operative diagnostic of the digital systems,
reliability of the Man-Machine systams,
principles, models and applications of the redundance.
  • Theory of the reliability
  • Hardware and software reliability of the digital systms
  • Definition of the reliability, clafficiation of the failures
  • Numerical parameters of the reliability
  • Reliability evaluation of the electronics devices
  • Grounding notations of theoretical and technical diagnostics
  • Failures model of the technical systems
  • Assembly methods of the combination and sequental logical circuits tests
  • Fundamental procedures of the easy tested circuits
  • Fundamental procedures of the fault tolerant systems - checking of the failure-free activity, relaxation after failure, reconfiguration, depletion of the operation
  • Methods and models of the redundacy
  • Fundamental of the technical systems predicting diagnostics
  • Hardware and software functionality checking tools of the digital system
  • Hardware and software diagnostics tools of the digital systems
  • Microprocessors systems testing and ROMBIOS
  • G. Bolch, S. Greiner, H. de Meer, K. Trivedi - Queueing Networks and Markov Chains: Modeling and Performance Evaluation with Computer Science Applications
  • Military Handbook MIL-HDBK-217F: Reliability prediction of electronic equipment
  • Perry L. Martin - Electronic Failure Analysis Handbook
  • Military Standard MIL-STD-785B: Reliability program for systems and equipment, development and production
