"Without proper reliability and maintenance planning, even the most efficient and seemingly cost-effective designs can incur enormous expenses due to repeated or catastrophic failure and subsequent search for the cause. Today's engineers face increasing pressure from employers, customers, and regulators to produce cost-efficient designs that are less prone to failure and that are safe and easy to use. An understanding of reliability principles and maintenance planning can help accomplish these conflicting goals." "Presenting an integrated approach to reliability evaluation and maintenance planning, Reliability Engineering: Probabilistic Models and Maintenance Methods provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental concepts of reliability theory, basic models, and various methods of analysis. It contains numerous examples and problems in each chapter. The first six chapters sequentially outline each basic concept of reliability theory, followed by two chapters on commonly used statistical models for evaluating component reliability. The book concludes with five chapters on repairable systems and maintenance planning, a chapter devoted to special topics such as warranties, and appendices on numerical computation." "With an accessible blend of mathematical rigor and readability, Reliability Engineering is the ideal reference for novice and expert engineers seeking to increase the performance and longevity of their designs, for the analysis and verification of product reliability, and for maintenance planning."--Jacket.
