Student Edition, Practical Reliability Engineering, Third Edition Revised, Patrick D. T. O?Connor, British Aerospace plc, UK with David Newton, DN Consultancy, UK, Richard Bromley, RGB Services Ltd, UK

Now fully revised with self-assessment questions for students, this classic text explains the proven methods for the development and production of reliable equipment in engineering. Students, engineers and managers will find this practical guide a vital reference source. Building on the successful previous editions, the revised edition includes material on process improvement methods, process control techniques and the reliability of mechanical components. The use of statistical experimentation for preventing, not just solving, problems is explored and the highly influential work of Taguchi and Shainin is described. Practical Reliability Engineering fulfils the requirements of the qualifying examinations in reliability engineering of the Institute of Quality Assurance (UK) and the American Society of Quality Control (USA). With the addition of end-of-chapter questions this is the indispensable text for students undertaking courses in quality assurance or reliability. Design and quality control engineers working on projects in the mechanical, electrical, or electronic industries will find it invaluable, as will engineers and managers involved in systems engineering and workers in industrial and government agencies.
