Learning outcomes 1) To obtain knowledge in what concerns the following itens: Equipment performance, failure and fault, failure modes, failure roots, reliability and their steps, maintenability, failure ratios, and repair ratios.
2) To develop studies and skills related to the Reliability Centred Maintenance, as well as to the statistical and probabilistic distributions, and reliability evaluation.
3) To study all aspects concerning reliability and maintenability international standardization, for practical applications.
4) To stimulate the critical thinking.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria 1) Continuous assessment: written report and written test, with a final grade of at least 10 (ten).
2) Assessment by final exam: final exam and a written report, with a minimum final grade of 10 (ten).
3) Formulas for calculating the final grade:
Continuous evaluation:
NF (final grade) = [N1 (report grade) x 0.60 + N2 (test grade) x 0.40]
Assessment by final exam:
NF (final grade) = [NE (final exam grade) x 0.40 + NT (report grade) x0.60]
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
