Student Edition, Practical Reliability Engineering, Third Edition Revised, Patrick D. T. O?Connor, British Aerospace plc, UK with David Newton, DN Consultancy, UK, Richard Bromley, RGB Services Ltd, UK

Now fully revised with self-assessment questions for students, this classic text explains the proven methods for the development and production of reliable equipment in engineering. Students, engineers and managers will find this practical guide a vital reference source. Building on the successful previous editions, the revised edition includes material on process improvement methods, process control techniques and the reliability of mechanical components. The use of statistical experimentation for preventing, not just solving, problems is explored and the highly influential work of Taguchi and Shainin is described. Practical Reliability Engineering fulfils the requirements of the qualifying examinations in reliability engineering of the Institute of Quality Assurance (UK) and the American Society of Quality Control (USA). With the addition of end-of-chapter questions this is the indispensable text for students undertaking courses in quality assurance or reliability. Design and quality control engineers working on projects in the mechanical, electrical, or electronic industries will find it invaluable, as will engineers and managers involved in systems engineering and workers in industrial and government agencies.

From the Back Cover:

THE classic text on reliability engineering and management has now been fully revised and updated.

Practical Reliability Engineering provides a comprehensive, up-to-date description of all the important methods for the design, development, manufacture and maintenance of reliable engineering products and systems. Students, engineers and managers alike will find this a valuable reference source.

With emphasis firmly placed on the practical aspects of reliability engineering, the fourth edition provides extended coverage of mechanical, electronic and software failure mechanisms, design and testing. New sections include Petri nets for system reliability modelling, accelerated test and the M(t) data analysis method. Recent developments in international standardisation are discussed and guidance is provided on essential management issues. The inclusion of a draft Project Reliability Plan enhances the value to those involved in systems engineering and project management.

Practical Reliability Engineering fulfils the requirements of the qualifying examination in reliability engineering of the American Society for Quality (USA). The updated end of chapter questions make this a key text for students undertaking courses in quality assurance or reliability.
