Updated throughout for the second edition, Reliability Engineering: A Life Cycle Approach draws on the author’s global industry experience to demonstrate the invaluable role reliability engineers play in the entire life cycle of a plant.

Applicable to both high-cost, cutting-edge plants and to plants operating under serious budget constraints, this textbook uses a practical approach to cover the theory of reliability engineering, alongside the design, operation, and maintenance required in a plant. This textbook has been updated to cover the modern standards of maintenance practice, most notably the ISO 55 000 standards. It also covers linear programming, failure analysis, financial management, and analysis. This textbook refers to case studies throughout.

This textbook will be of interest to students and engineers in the field of reliability, mechanical, manufacturing, and industrial engineering. It will also be relevant to automotive and aerospace engineers.
