Product Reliability Maintainability and Supportability Handbook Second Edition

Author: Michael Pecht
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1420009893
Release Date: 2009-04-16
Genre: Technology & Engineering

To ensure product reliability, an organization must follow specific practices during the product development process that impact reliability. The second edition of the bestselling Product Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability Handbook helps professionals identify the shortcomings in the reliability practices of their organizations and empowers them to take actions to overcome them. The book begins by discussing product effectiveness and its related functions, presents the mathematical theory for reliability, and introduces statistical inference concepts as ways to analyze probabilistic models from observational data. Later chapters introduce basic types of probability distributions; present the concepts of confidence interval; focus on reliability assessment; and examine software reliability, quality, and safety. Use FMMEA to identify failure mechanisms Reflecting the latest developments in the field, the book introduces a new methodology known as failure modes, mechanisms, and effects analysis (FMMEA) to identify potential failure mechanisms. Shifting to a practical stance, the book delineates steps that must be taken to develop a product that meets reliability objectives. It describes how to combine reliability information from parts and subsystems to compute system level reliability, presents methods for evaluating reliability in fault-tolerant conditions, and describes methods for modeling and analyzing failures of repairable products. The text discusses reliability growth, accelerated testing, and management of a continuous improvement program; analyzes the influence of reliability on logistics support requirements; shows how to assess overall product effectiveness; and introduces the concepts of process capability and statistical process control techniques. New Topics in the Second Edition Include: Failure Modes, Mechanisms, and Effects Analysis Confidence Interval on Reliability Metrics and their Relationships with Measures of Product Quality Process Control and Process Capability and their Relationship with Product Reliability System Reliability, including Redundancy

Prognostics and Health Management of Electronics

Author: Michael G. Pecht
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470385838
Release Date: 2008-09-11
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The first book on Prognostics and Health Management of Electronics Recently, the field of prognostics for electronic products has received increased attention due to the potential to provide early warning of system failures, forecast maintenance as needed, and reduce life cycle costs. In response to the subject's growing interest among industry, government, and academic professionals, this book provides a road map to the current challenges and opportunities for research and development in Prognostics and Health Management (PHM). The book begins with a review of PHM and the techniques being developed to enable a prognostics approach for electronic products and systems. building on this foundation, the book then presents the state of the art in sensor systems for in-situ health and usage monitoring. Next, it discusses the various models and algorithms that can be utilized in PHM. Finally, it concludes with a discussion of the opportunities in future research. Readers can use the information in this book to: Detect and isolate faults Reduce the occurrence of No Fault Found (NFF) Provide advanced warning of system failures Enable condition-based (predictive) maintenance Obtain knowledge of load history for future design, qualification, and root cause analysis Increase system availability through an extension of maintenance cycles and/or timely repair actions Subtract life cycle costs of equipment from reduction in inspection costs, down time, and inventory Prognostics and Health Management of Electronics is an indispensable reference for electrical engineers in manufacturing, systems maintenance, and management, as well as design engineers in all areas of electronics.
