            Reliability is quality over time. It is formally defined as the probability of a product or system performing as intended for a specified time. Improper analysis of product reliability can be very expensive or even fatal. Many of the product recalls that we see daily are due to u...nexpected failures resulting from poor reliability analysis during the product design stage. Minitabis a statistical software package that has a highly useful set of Reliability/Survival tools, but those tools are barely explored or explained in literature. This new book illustrates the application of Minitabfor Reliability Analysis using case studies in both manufacturing and service sectors.

            Structural Reliability Analysis and Prediction, Third Edition is a textbook which addresses the important issue of predicting the safety of structures at the design stage and also the safety of existing, perhaps deteriorating structures. Attention is focused on the development an...d definition of limit states such as serviceability and ultimate strength, the definition of failure and the various models which might be used to describe strength and loading. This book emphasises concepts and applications, built up from basic principles and avoids undue mathematical rigour. It presents an accessible and unified account of the theory and techniques for the analysis of the reliability of engineering structures using probability theory. This new edition has been updated to cover new developments and applications and a new chapter is included which covers structural optimization in the context of reliability analysis. New examples and end of chapter problems are also now included.

            Reliability in Biomechanics
             

            Reliability in Biomechanics (Hardback)

            In this book, we present in detail several recent methodologies and algorithms that we have developed during the last fifteen years. The deterministic methods account for uncertainties through empirical safety factors, which implies that the actual uncertainties in materials, geo...metry and loading are not truly considered. This problem becomes much more complicated when considering biomechanical applications where a number of uncertainties are encountered in the design of prosthesis systems. Therefore, the reliability and optimization coupling leads to reliable and optimal designs. The reliability and optimization procedures are classically carried out using deterministic constraints, but when considering the living tissues, the constraints become variable, that leads to a different design space at each iteration. There is a strong need to consider this complexity on the material property uncertainty. The mechanical properties change permanently in terms of the mechanical environment, ageing, disease, nutrition and other factors. This book implements improved numerical strategies and algorithms that can be applied only in biomechanical studies.

            "Degradation process" refers to many types of reliability models, which correspond to various kinds of stochastic processes used for deterioration modeling. This book focuses on the case of a univariate degradation model with a continuous set of possible outcomes. The envisioned ...univariate models have one single measurable quantity which is assumed to be observed over time. The first three chapters are each devoted to one degradation model. The last chapter illustrates the use of the previously described degradation models on some real data sets. For each of the degradation models, the authors provide probabilistic results and explore simulation tools for sample paths generation. Various estimation procedures are also developed.

            Reliability Engineering: Probabilistic Models and Maintenance Methods, Second Edition (Hardback, 2nd New edition, Contains 1 Book and 1 Digital (delivered electronically))

            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 engineering students face increasing pressure from em...ployers, customers, and regulators to produce cost-efficient designs that are less prone to failure and that are safe and easy to use. The second edition of Reliability Engineering aims to provide an understanding of reliability principles and maintenance planning to help accomplish these goals. This edition expands the treatment of several topics while maintaining an integrated introductory resource for the study of reliability evaluation and maintenance planning. The focus across all of the topics treated is the use of analytical methods to support the design of dependable and efficient equipment and the planning for the servicing of that equipment. The argument is made that probability models provide an effective vehicle for portraying and evaluating the variability that is inherent in the performance and longevity of equipment. With a blend of mathematical rigor and readability, this book is the ideal introductory textbook for graduate students and a useful resource for practising engineers.

            Edgar Bradley's Reliability Engineering: A Life-Cycle Approach is based on the author's 50 years of experience in industry and academics, covering foundational reliability statistics, numerous topics not covered in other texts, plus case studies of plants in mid-life. These cases... are open ended, as in real life, with not all the necessary information available, and the need for intelligent calculations to derive probable answers. Worked examples and problems are included, emphasizing students' analysis and problem-solving skills. This specific structure of the book makes it suitable for both graduate students and practicing reliability and maintenance engineers.

            The origin of this book is the compelling evidence that a high proportion of machinery-related deaths and injuries are attributable to genuine and serious risks originating within machine design and construction. This trend continues despite significant legal obligations, notably... the European regulatory regime giving effect to the Machinery Directive (among others), and a substantial body of specialist knowledge originating in the disciplines of human factors and safety engineering. Grounded in empirical research with machinery manufacturers, this book aims to elucidate the factors and processes shaping firmsa (TM) performance for machinery safety, and considers their compatibility with legal obligations. Through a unique blending of rich empirical data coupled with safety, human factors, socio-legal and learning scholarship, the book provides both a nuanced account of firmsa (TM) performance for machinery safety, and makes conceptual and theoretical contributions to understanding and explaining their performance. Specifically, the book elucidates the role of knowledge and motivational factors - and how these are constituted - in shaping firmsa (TM) performance. It reveals the multiple state and non-state influences that create plural responses among manufacturing firms, which typically operate in supply chains and networks, and often globally. These insights provide the foundations to enhance regulatory design, and the booka (TM)s conclusion recommends some innovative directions for regulatory interventions to sustain the safe design and construction of machinery.
