The objectives of this course are to enable students to model more complex factors that may have an impact on system performance and improve their ability to use the SIMLOX Model more effectively by :-
- Damage: In addition to random failures a system or items can also be subject to damages.
- Advanced resources: Remote resources, mission resources and failing resources.
- Reconfiguration: Automatic configuration of system dependent on mission type.
- Unit Groups: Several independent units can perform the same task.
- Reliability Block Diagrams: Item groups and redundancy of items dependent on mission type.
- Dependency: Missions dependent on other missions.
- Multiple Systems on mission: Multiple system/system types on the same mission.
- Scheduled Data Changes: Enable modelling of dynamic scenarios where maintenance activities and item reliabilities can be varied over time.
- Distributions: Time distributions can be used instead of average times.
- Location Of Repair Analysis: Analysis of OPUS10 LORA problems in SIMLOX
The course is a workshop for a maximum of 6 students and lasts for FOUR days. The course will include manual calculation and hands-on use of SIMLOX, to reinforce learning points. The exercises are intended to challenge the students ability to analyse the information provided and apply it to the model. As experienced SIMLOX users, students will be expected to work on the exercises as individuals and be able to use their analytical skills to identify possible solutions.
Attendees who meet the following criteria will gain most from this course:
- Be a regular SIMLOX User.
- Had at least 6 Months Continuous Experience since attending the SIMLOX Intermediate Training Course or been an occasional user for a much longer period.
Courses are normally held at the William Cecil Hotel in Stamford or the Assembly House in Norwich.
