Exam (5 tasks, 6 points per task): estimation scale 0-5, which correspond to 0-30 points. Training: each exercise graded on a pass - fail. Participation in lectures and training: if there is no more than 3 absences total, so the points given in the exam added 6 points. The condition is that the student has received the exam at least 9 points.

Sisältö Ydinsisältö Täydentävä tietämys Erityistietämys
1. Introduction of Systems RAMS Engineering Application and Management.   RAMS terminology. Concept of RAMS engineering process integrated in system design and realization, and technical management processes. (A system is a combination of interacting or interdependent elements organized to accomplish one or more stated functions. Respectively a system element is a discrete part of a system that can be implemented to fulfil specified requirements.)    
2. Modeling and analysis of Systems failure cause-consequence logic.  Event Logic Modelling and Analysis methods. Failure and operation structure. Deterministic and Probabilistic approach.   
3. Specification and Allocation of Systems RAMS Design Requirements.  Stakeholders Expectations and Requirements Definition.    
4. Methods for seeking out and selecting Systems design solutions from RAMS point of view.  Simulation and calculation of reliability performance and maintenance costs. Application of expert judgement in RAMS data assessemt.    
5. Application of RAMS design review to Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) in system-service design and development process.  Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) and Probabilistic Availability Assessment (PAA) and life cycle cost calculatiion.
