System Reliability Theory: Models and Statistical Methods
John Wiley & Sons, Sep 25, 2009 - Technology & Engineering - 536 pages
A comprehensive introduction to reliability analysis. The first section provides a thorough but elementary prologue to reliability theory. The latter half comprises more advanced analytical tools including Markov processes, renewal theory, life data analysis, accelerated life testing and Bayesian reliability analysis. Features numerous worked examples. Each chapter concludes with a selection of problems plus additional material on applications.
What people are saying - Write a review
Read time models and counting processes only. Best colleague since many years. Models explained simply. A praying place when needs to remember time models.
I extremely recommend seekers to go through first, before goes into mathematical fashionable writings of some others.
