The RAMS group

The RAMS group is a research group under the department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, at the Engineering Faculty at NTNU.

RAMS group members

The group members have various scientific foundation: cybernetics, statistics, management, computer science, mechanical engineering, systems engineering, and chemical engineering. Common for us all is that we complemented this foundation with theories and methods in the area of risk, reliability, and maintenance modeling and analysis. We have recruited internationally and in the industry for new members of the group, and the group is therefore characterized by having strong academic background combined with industry experience.
