The Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) is the premier event in the reliability, availability, and maintainability engineering disciplines. Combining tutorials, presentations, CEUs, certifications, and networking into one week-long program, the RAMS® delivers cutting edge information to all technical industries.
The Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS®) is a yearly gathering of the product assurance disciplines where training, tutorials, and the latest technical practices, procedures, and results are presented in easy-to-utilize forums and proceedings.
RAMS® consistently pushes the leading edge of our discipline and profession through published papers, informative tutorials, excellent networking and product demonstrations.
Coupled with our RAMS® Vendor trade show, RAMS® continues to be one of the most comprehensive gatherings of Product Assurance professionals available in today’s competitive business environment.
We focus on providing real-world value for commercial and government applications through succinct delivery of the latest techniques and business practices.
We understand what it takes to succeed in today’s market place, as our Symposium is organized and staffed by over 50 individuals, most volunteers, who are currently supporting these disciplines in some form or fashion.
