Center for Reliability Growth

Why reliability is important.

Reliability affects Schedule, Performance, Safety, and Cost.

The Center for Reliability Growth (CRG) works towards improving reliability by providing policy, guidance, standards, methods, tools, and training. In doing so, reliability, materiel/operational availability, and initial operational testing success rates can be increased while support costs and logistics footprint are decreased.

The CRG maintains a collection of key reliability tools, models, and documents. By capturing and archiving actual test metrics/data, the models and tools are validated and improved. The CRG also applies resources to perform reliability or physics-of-failure analyses for select high-impact projects. Additionally, the CRG develops contract language, methodology, policy, and military handbooks & standards. The CRG allows for return on investment, reduced test time, and reduced O&S cost through the use of design-for-reliability activities.

The CRG Overview* briefing provides addtional insight into the work the CRG team performs.
