Front Cover
Wiley, Mar 8, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 416 pages
0 Reviews
A unique book that describes the practical processes necessaryto achieve failure free equipment performance, for quality andreliability engineers, design, manufacturing process andenvironmental test engineers.

This book studies the essential requirements for successfulproduct life cycle management. It identifies key contributors tofailure in product life cycle management and particular emphasis isplaced upon the importance of thorough Manufacturing ProcessCapability reviews for both in-house and outsourced manufacturingstrategies. The readers? attention is also drawn to the manyhazards to which a new product is exposed from the commencement ofmanufacture through to end of life disposal.

  • Revolutionary in focus, as it describes how to achieve failurefree performance rather than how to predict an acceptableperformance failure rate (reliability technology rather thanreliability engineering)
  • Author has over 40 years experience in the field, and the textis based on classroom tested notes from the reliability technologycourse he taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),USA 
  • Contains graphical interpretations of mathematical modelstogether with diagrams, tables of physical constants, case studiesand unique worked examples
