Reliability, Availability and Maintainability
Nova believes effectiveness of engineered systems should be judged by the extent to which they fulfil their intended purpose. For this to happen a system must be available when required and be able to be used reliably, consistent with operational needs. Nova has significant experience in the concepts of Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM), and the relationships between them. RAM directly affect the effectiveness of a system. Nova’s approach taken to understanding the concepts include a treatment of each of the factors separately, together with a consideration of the relationships between them, so that a systemic view of RAM is obtained. Our clients are encouraged to consider the applicability of RAM concepts and techniques used to validate system acquisition and support.
