The Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) is the premier event in the reliability, availability, and maintainability engineering disciplines. Combining tutorials, presentations, CEUs, certifications, and networking into one week-long program, the RAMS® delivers cutting edge information to all technical industries.
Take advantage of our early bird pricing and register early this year! Registration for RAMS 2016 in Tucson, AZ will open later this year.
Abstracts for RAMS 2016 will be accepted here for papers and tutorials from now until April 15, 2015. In order to do so, simply click the PAPER or TUTORIAL buttons at the top of this page.
RAMS® 2016 will be held in Tucson, AZ , January 25-28, 2016.
Reliability is not just an attribute to be measured: it can be engineered into your products to provide an objective justification for customer confidence. Our entire world depends on technology, systems and systems of systems, thus our theme for RAMS 2016. “R&M: Critical to Success in a Technology Reliant World”.
RAMS® 2016 will bring together an international audience of R&M leaders and professionals for in-depth sessions and tutorials presented by top experts, exhibits featuring leading companies, keynote session insights, networking and job related opportunities, and more. This year’s Keynote and Banquet Speakers will be addressing RAM in the context of programs and projects of National and International Significance. For more information see the General Chair’s Message.
The program includes:
• Tutorials, from basic to advanced
• Technical paper sessions
• Panel sessions
• Exhibits program
• Certificate program
• Networking opportunities
• Short Courses
TUTORIALS – topics range from introductory to advanced, and will be presented in two-hour, in-depth sessions at the Symposium. The two-level RAMS® Tutorial Certificate Program is offered. The first level requires attending five core concept tutorials; the second level requires an additional 10 tutorials based on professional needs and interests, taken across at least two Symposia. Due to the timeliness of the material, the Certificate Program must be completed within four years of the first core tutorial. Upon completion of the program, the participant will receive a RAMS® certificate, a letter of completion, and a list of tutorials attended.
SHORT COURSES – Two short courses are provided by ASQ Reliability Division: Root Cause Analysis and Introduction to Monte Carlo Simulation. For more course information, please click here [PDF]. Courses may change and additional courses may be offered, check back here often for details.
Attendees continue to provide positive feedback on the practical, as well as theoretical, technical content of this symposium. The 2016 content is expected to feature roughly half the sessions presented as tutorials, and the other half as technical papers on reliability advances and case studies.
Unlike some technical conferences where The Proceedings represent the primary product, RAMS® is a professional symposium that emphasizes the benefits to be derived from face-to-face contact with peers facing similar technical challenges.
