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 early bird rates and follow this link to register for RAMS 2014. Early bird deadline: December 8, 2013.
Now offering Pre and Post-Conference Short Courses!
RAMS® 2014 will be held at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO, January 27-30, 2014. The hotel reservations cut-off date: Friday, December 20th, 2013.
Reliability is not just an attribute to be measured: it can be engineered into your products to provide an objective justification for customer confidence. And, this is why this year’s theme is “Engineering Customer Trust”.
RAMS® 2014 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.
The program includes:
• Tutorials, from basic to advanced
• Technical paper sessions
• Panel sessions
• Exhibits program
• Certificate program
• Networking opportunities
• Short Courses
PAPERS – each paper will be presented at a half-hour session at the Symposium, and published in the Conference Proceedings on IEEE® Xplore Digital Library.
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.
ASQ Certification Exams - Special arrangements have been made with ASQ to offer ASQ Certified Reliability Engineer (CRE), Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB) and Certified Six Sigma Green Belt (CSSGB) examinations on Thursday, January 30, 2014, from 8:00 – noon.
Register on line for any of the examinations at https://asq.org/cert-exam-app-2014-rams.html up to the deadline of December 20, 2013. Walk in registration for the CRE and SSGB examinations will be permitted up to noon, Wednesday January 29, 2013 on a space available basis. For more information, visit ASQ’s Certification Website. The exams are open book and any silent, hand-held, battery-operated calculator without an alphabetic keyboard will be permitted. A picture ID is required for admittance.
Attendees continue to provide positive feedback on the practical, as well as theoretical, technical content of this symposium. The 2014 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.
