Overview

Approaching reliability from the standpoint of substance rather than advanced probability theory and higher mathematics, this book separates the hows from the whys at a level that is relevant to those with only limited technical training as well as those seeking a more analytical framework. Its three-fold presentation (1) describes how reliability is defined and specified; (2) addresses methods of designing reliability; and (3) covers techniques for proving and improving the reliability of a system.
