Papers of the conference will be published in book form by Cambridge Scholar Publishing


Reliability and safety engineering have attracted much attention in recent years and play an important role right from product design, manufacturing and maintenance phases of any engineering systems such as aerospace, automobile, power plants, security systems, naval systems, software etc. Further, with the growing computational techniques, signal processing techniques and with the use of machine learning methods, it is appropriate to ensure reliability by diagnosing faults at incipient stage. The proper operation of plants/machines are closely allied to the condition of various components such as pumps, compressors, rolling element bearings, cams, gears etc. Catastrophic failures of these components may cause expensive machine shutdowns, human casualties and may also affect the associated systems. This necessitates the use of highly sophisticated reliability and safety methods to check for the smooth operation regularly. Reliability and Safety Engineering have wide applications in all conventional engineering fields. This INCRS-2018 conference aims to bring together all the learners in this field of reliability and safety under one roof to share and build knowledge based platform.


The International and National Conference is being organized by PDPM Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing Jabalpur in association with SRESA Mumbai.

About PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur

PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur was established in 2005 with a focus on education and research in IT enabled Design and Manufacturing.

The Institute offers undergraduate, post graduate and PhD programmes in Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Design and PhD programmes in Mathematics and Physics. The Institute has been declared an Institute of National Importance in January 2015. The Institute campus is being developed on 250 acres of land close to Dumna Airport, Jabalpur.

Society for Reliability and Safety (SRESA), Mumbai

SRESA was established in the year 2010 with an objective to promote and develop reliability and safety engineering sciences. The society delivers reliability and safety engineering courses and services for any kind of energy systems like nuclear and thermal power plants, research reactors, and other industrial plants like nuclear irradiators, reprocessing plants, conventional process and chemical industry. Also society caters the need of ageing studies and remaining life assessment and diagnosis in scientific and technical manner. They promote research in the area of installation safety &security towards formulating tools and method for assessment of design basis threats and mitigation systems.
SRESA has organized 3 International Conference (International Conference on Reliability, Safety and Hazard – ICRESH) successfully. Internationally, ICRESH has established itself as one of the most established and reputed event. SRESA has also organized three National Conferences successfully. The INCRS is the 1st International and 4th National Conference on Reliability and Safety Engineering (INCRS-2018) to be organized with PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur.
