The 66th Annual Reliability & Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) will be held at the Marriott Renaissance in Palm Springs, CA during the week of January 27-30, 2020. The theme for RAMS® 2020 is “R&M in a Model-based System Engineering Environment”.
The evolution of autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, new levels of complexity in human-machine interface design, and maintainability decisions have intensified the critical role of RAMS® disciplines. Integrating design elements from concept to final design that replicates actual working environments is the challenge industry faces today. The RAMS® 2020 theme offers a broad umbrella of opportunities for presenting papers and tutorials that address theory and application of RAMS® disciplines in the design, development and support process; and how these disciplines can be applied to new technologies through lessons learned, analyses, modeling, and simulation. Equally important is the discussion on the classical approaches, spanning all technologies, and disciplines focusing on optimizing performance.
