Reliability and Maintenance : Networks and Systems, Hardback Book


Reliability and Maintenance: Networks and Systems gives an up-to-date presentation of system and network reliability analysis as well as maintenance planning with a focus on applicable models.

Balancing theory and practice, it presents state-of-the-art research in key areas of reliability and maintenance theory and includes numerous examples and exercises.

Every chapter starts with theoretical foundations and basic models and leads to more sophisticated models and ongoing research. The first part of the book introduces structural reliability theory for binary coherent systems.

Within the framework of these systems, the second part covers network reliability analysis.

The third part presents simply structured maintenance policies that may help with the cost-optimal scheduling of preventive maintenance.

Each part can be read independently of one another. Suitable for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in engineering, operations research, computer science, and applied mathematics, this book offers a thorough guide to the mathematical modeling of reliability and maintenance.

It supplies the necessary theoretical and practical details for readers to perform reliability analyses and apply maintenance policies in their organizations.
