A Reliability Engineer plays a key role in the lifecycle of a product. They oversee the assessment and management of the reliability of operations that could impact a product or business. This helps test current processes and highlight any failures or issues. This usually relates to engineering businesses that need to ensure their processes and equipment can reliably deliver the results required.

The primary focus is to determine the reliability of components, equipment and processes. For example, if certain processes appear vulnerable to breaking, this can be highlighted by the reliability engineer proactivity, to help avoid such issues and help sustain high levels of productivity and efficiency. By documenting, prioritizing, planning, delivering and evaluating operations, a reliability engineer helps minimize the risk and impact of failure in equipment and processes.
