The course will provide students the necessary skills to establish an organisational RAM program, along with an understanding of key RAM activities. This course will cover both ‘design for RAM’ and ‘RAM verification’ activities to include the perspectives of both the producer and the customer. Key principles include the relationship between RAM metrics and the ‘enabling trilogy’: the organisation, people and the materiel system. All activities are then related through RAM metrics to motivate organisational behaviour and realise organisational goals. In addition to expanding on RAM activities and considerations, a simulated exercise that reinforces RAM engineering considerations will be applied to real-life materiel system development and assurance. Further activities will focus on assessing organisational RAM maturity to gauge iterative improvements towards optimum RAM program configuration.
