An Introduction to Reliability and Maintainability Engineering
Charles E. Ebeling|2019.04.11
Many books on reliability focus on either modeling or statistical analysis and require an extensive background in probability and statistics. Continuing its tradition of excellence as an introductory text for those with limited formal education in the subject, this classroom-tested book introduces the necessary concepts in probability and statistics within the context of their application to reliability. The Third Edition adds brief discussions of the Anderson Darling test, the Cox proportionate hazards model, the Accelerated Failure Time model, and Monte Carlo simulation.
Over 80 new end-of-chapter exercises have been added, as well as solutions to all odd-numbered exercises. Moreover, Excel workbooks, available for download, save students from performing numerous tedious calculations and allow them to focus on reliability concepts. Ebeling has created an exceptional text that enables readers to learn how to analyze failure, repair data, and derive appropriate models for reliability and maintainability as well as apply those models to all levels of design
