University of Novi Sad Technical faculty "Mihajlo Pupin" Zrenjanin


This course has a role to instruct students in the study of reliability system. The goal of this course is to enable students to solve problems in the field of vehicle maintenance. Knowledge gained through teaching this course will contribute to ensure that students will be able to determine the reliability of technical system. Students will be trained to solve practical engineering problems in the field of machine reliability.

Theoretical study

Performance reliability. Performance maintainability. Performance of logistics support. Distribution function in the field of reliability. Assessment of the law of distribution reliability indices. Methods of determining the distribution function. IEC 300-1/ISO9000-4. Construction of machine with regard to reliability. Calculation examples of complex machines reliability.

Practical study

Solving practical tasks of teaching units specified for the theoretical classes.
