    Reliaiblity (text book) definition:  The probability that an item (product) will perform a required function(s) without failure under stated conditions for a stated period of time.
    Reliaiblity Engineering are the methods and techniques to maximize that probability.  Some of the most common tools are: DFMEA, Reliability Block Diagrams, Fault tree Analysis, QFD, etc.
    A very good book to learn more is Practical Reliability Engineering by Patrick O’Connor
