Since approx. 20 years I am in charge of 'Product Assurance'-related professions (policy, overview). I am interested to share my capability on the field of RAM(Dependability) & Safety Management forecast of RAM-related Commercial Risk, RAM Analysis & Safety Assessment, Reliability-tests, LCC Analyses and Performance Monitoring with bodies, companies and other interested people.
PA – Product Assurance (RAM & Safety & Quality)
RAM – Reliability, Availability, Maintainability (Dependability)
LCC – Life Cycle Costing
Once a colleague of mine told me:
„To bring over the results of RAM & Safety it is like selling 1m rubber-band”
It is partly true because of a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ one will hear
‘probably YES’ or ‘probably NO’ or ‘YES but…’ or ‘NO but…’.
These answers are not wrong but often unusable in process of decision-making.
Therefore for me, it was always a challenge to make
‘probably YES’ and ‘probably NO’
understandable and practically usable for
product developing, forecast of commercial risk and project-management- in different technical areas like:
railway business /
conventional power plants /
nuclear power plants /
technical education /
and based on applicable standards.
Than the ‘1m rubber-band’ becomes a flexible and strong tool to fix problems,
which can not be fixed with a simple rope.
