Overview

Reliability, Maintainability and Risk deals with all aspects of reliability, maintainability and safety-related failures in a simple and straightforward style, explaining technical terms and jargon and pre-supposing no prior knowledge of the subject. The author explains dealing with numerical data, making realistic predictions using the minimum of mathematics, and handling the limitations of reliability parameters.

A well-established book has been considerably expanded in this fully revised fifth edition to take account of:
* RCM and the optimization of maintenance strategies
* Trends in the integrity of safety-related systems
* Risk assessment
* Updated information on software tools for reliability and risk assessment
