Golay and Steve Fairfax first met at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, MIT, and have been colleagues for a number of years. Together they
have explored their mutual interest in the application of scientific
analysis and PRA, Probablistic Risk Assessment, to real-world engineering
Their joint projects include collaborative publications such as Long-term Availability of the Sure Power System Installation at the First National Technology Center. 1999, (Prepared by MTechnology Inc.:D. Bruce Montgomery, Stephen A. Fairfax, Professor Michael Golay, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, MIT; Frank Felder, Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, MIT and MTechnology, Inc.) and the development of Real Availability: A Short Course for 7x24 Professionals which they co-authored and co-taught for the first time in 2000.
Mike and Steve revise each offering of Real Availability to incorporate the latest theory and best practices in this fascinating and evolving discipline.
