Proven statistical reliability analysis methods-available for the first time to engineers in the West While probabilistic methods of system reliability analysis have reached an unparalleled degree of refinement, Russian engineers have concentrated on developing more advanced statistical methods. Over the past several decades, their efforts have yielded highly evolved statistical models that have proven to be especially valuable in the estimation of reliability based upon tests of individual units of systems. Now Statistical Reliability Engineering affords engineers a unique opportunity to learn both the theory behind and applications of those statistical methods. Written by three leading innovators in the field, Statistical Reliability Engineering: * Covers all mathematical models for statistical reliability analysis, including Bayesian estimation, accelerated testing, and Monte Carlo simulation * Focuses on the estimation of various measures of system reliability based on the testing of individual units * Contains new theoretical results available for the first time in print * Features numerous examples demonstrating practical applications of the theory presented Statistical Reliability Engineering is an important professional resource for reliability and design engineers, especially those in the telecommunications and electronics industries. It is also an excellent course text for advanced courses in reliability engineering.

BASIC Reliability Engineering Analysis describes reliability activities as they occur during an industrial development cycle. Reliability as a function of time is discussed, along with systems modeling, predicting and estimating reliability, and quality assurance. This book is comprised of seven chapters and begins with a brief introduction to the BASIC computer language used in the programs in the text. The second chapter describes the way reliability is taken into account in different parts of the development cycle, while the third chapter discusses the basic concepts of reliability as a function of time, failure rate, and some basic statistical concepts. The fourth chapter deals with the modeling of complex systems and related topics such as availability and maintainability. The fifth chapter describes the activities that can go on early in the development cycle, while the sixth chapter gives some of the techniques that can be used to analyze data generated during development or later in the cycle when equipment is in use. The final chapter offers a brief look at quality assurance and acquaints the reader with the concepts involved, using inspection by attributes to introduce the ideas. This monograph is intended for engineers or managers with a particular interest in reliability, as well as for engineering undergraduates.
