Reliability and Risk Models: Setting Reliability Requirements

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 1, 2005 - Technology & Engineering - 340 pages
0 Reviews
Presenting a radically new approach and technology for setting reliability requirements, this superb book also provides the first comprehensive overview of the M/F-FOP philosophy and its applications.
* Each chapter covers probabilistic models, statistical and numerical procedures, applications and/or case studies
* Comprehensively examines a new methodology for problem solving in the context of real reliability engineering problems
* All models have been implemented in C++
* The algorithms and programming code supplied can be used as a software toolbox for setting MFFOP
* Case studies are taken from the nuclear, automotive and offshore industry to provide 'real-world' applications.
