Reliability, Maintainability and Risk by David Smith

After three editions Reliability, Maintainability in Perspective became Reliability, Maintainability and Risk and has now, after just 20 years, reached its 6th edition. In such a fast moving subject, the time has come, yet again, to expand and update the material particularly with the results of my recent studies into common cause failure and into the correlation between predicted and achieved field reliability. The techniques which are explained apply to both reliability and safety engineering and are also applied to optimizing maintenance strategies. The collection of techniques concerned with reliability, availability, maintainability and safety are often referred to as RAMS.
