Reliability Verification, Testing, and Analysis in Engineering Designby Gary S. Wasserman
Synopses & Reviews
Striking a balance between the use of computer-aided engineering practices and classical life testing, this reference expounds on current theory and methods for designing reliability tests and analyzing resultant data through various examples using Microsoft?? Excel, MINITAB, WinSMITH, and ReliaSoft software across multiple industries. The book discusses modern design reliability principles, techniques, and terms, applications of Microsoft?? Excel Tool Solver and Goal Seek nonlinear search procedures for developing Fisher matrices and likelihood ratio confidence intervals, and table generation on median ranks, beta-binomial bounds, and standard percents.
Book News Annotation:
A textbook for courses introducing the theory and practice of applied life data analysis, also usable as a reference for practicing reliability engineering professionals. Most of the material is designed to be accessible to students with little background in reliability, advanced topics being relegated to later chapters and appendices. Many worked-out examples are included using popular software products.
