Reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS) constitute the key element of the assessment in the rail industry today. For rail system operator, RAMS means a safe, reliable, high-quality service and lower operating and maintenance costs. For the rail system provider, RAMS is representing a high-quality system and product. RAMS is the basis of many companies' competitive edge. System assurance is a systematic and proactive to ensure the RAM, Safety and EMC requirements are met in a complex project environment. System Assurance process provides guidance for integration of the highly complex and multiple technology systems that must seamlessly perform to guarantee a safe and reliable railway transport system. It is a holistic engineering management approach multiple to integrated multiple systems seamlessly. RAMS Management is subset of System Assurance and considered as one of the most important activity. RAMS Management process helps to integrate RAM and Safety characteristics into project/product systematically across the project life cycle. Moreover, it provides a process framework for Railway Authorities (Railway Duty Holders and Railway Support Industries (Suppliers) to ensure systems have been designed, constructed, and operated considering all critical factors related to RAM & Safety.


RAMS means Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety. It is an engineering discipline that integrates reliability,
availability, maintainability, and safety characteristics of a railway system into the product design. The course starts by providing
the context of RAMS. To introduce participants on the different parameters of as applicable to railway systems in general and
metro system. The participants will be understanding on the process of specifying the RAM and Safety targets for the different
subsystems of the Metro rail and ensure their compliance from the respective contractors.


❑ Learn about the main principles, processes and tools of RAMS and build an efficient system &
    organization to improve Reliability, Availability, Maintainability & Safety Concepts in a
    Railway System.
❑ Understand the importance of having a good organization of data management and learn from
    best practice on implementing a RAMS System.
❑ Understand the different parameters of RAMS and applicable standards.


• Professionals in Transportation Industries.
• Professionals Interested in Obtaining A Wider and More International Perspective on The RAMS
   in Railway Systems.
• Professionals in Traction, Electrification, Signaling, Business Analytics, Data Analysis & Process
   and Project, Maintenance


We have rich experience in RAMS consulting and certification in the rail previously for MRT 2, and other industries. We provide RAMS services during all phases of a system's lifecycle, from the determining, allocating, design and verifying RAMS targets during the system development phase, to the analysis and improvement of RAMS performance during the system operation and maintenance phase

Dr. Nor Aziati Abdul Hamid is currently an Associate Professor at Faculty of Technology Management and Business, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. She holds a PhD in Information System from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and a Master of Science in Information technology from Universiti Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam. She has published journal and conference papers. She has teaching experience with over 10 years beside a head of several external research grants. Her research interests include manufacturing, ISO, business excellence, manufacturing, and lean. She is actively involved as technical committees for various international conferences locally and internationally. She has experience involved with MRT2 RAMS for Network and Communication, SCADA System and Traction Power System. She also the leader of the RAMS Consortium for 3 universities in Malaysia. She actively involves with RAMS research on system engineering KTMB, on-train data logger analysis for train incident and accident, big data management & analytics, management information system, cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT). She has been appointed as Ministry of Transport Advisory Panel for Railway Safety under System Safety Assurance cluster.

Ts. Dr Hairulazwan Hashim obtained his PhD from Nagoya University, Japan in 2020, and M.Eng. from Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), in 2007. He is a Senior Lecturer and currently the Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering Technology in the Faculty of Engineering Technology, UTHM. His teaching and research interest include Micro-Nano Robotics, Industrial Automation, Signaling and communication in railway application, Electrification system in railway application, and Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS) in railway application. His recent work task in railway application is on Signaling and Communication of Urban Railway, Development of Predictive Maintenance Tools for Traction Power Supply (TPS), KTMB Electrification Department and System Assurance (SA) of Power SCADA which focusing more on RAMS for KTMB Electrified Double Track Gemas-Johor Bahru Project. He is a member of IEEE, IAENG, IEM, and MBOT.

Limited to 470 participants only (first come basis) and confirmation email will be sent for successful registration latest by 14 June 2021 @ 5.00 PM
