Clark School’s Center for Reliability Engineering to Run DoD Initiative

The U.S. Department of Defense has selected the Clark School’s Center for Reliability Engineering (CFRE), under contract to Wyle Laboratories, to run the DoD’s Reliability Information Analysis Center (RIAC) in an agreement that will bring some $5 million to the school.

"The RIAC is a DoD Center of Excellence and technical focal point for information, data analysis, training and technical assistance in the engineering fields of reliability, maintainability, supportability, and quality," said Mohammad Modarres, CFRE director. "CFRE and its faculty will be involved in research, consulting, publications and tool development in the areas of human reliability, structural reliability, the engineering and physics of failure, and software reliability."

Although funded by the DoD, the RAC will undertake a variety of support projects for other government organizations and corporations.
