Book Description

Dec 5 2003 1580533728 978-1580533720 1
This timely resource offers you a comprehensive, unified treatment of the techniques and practice of systems reliability and failure prevention, without the use of advanced mathematics. Featuring numerous, in-depth real-world examples, the book distills the author's many years of practical experience in designing and testing critical systems. The book helps you set reliability requirements for a new product, monitor compliance with these requirements during development and later life cycle phases, account for software failures in an integrated reliability assessment, and allocate a fixed reliability improvement budget to guide decisions by cost considerations and trade-offs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for non-pro's Dec 14 2009
By Oilconx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Chapter 1, Chapter 2 and Chapter 5 are at beginner's level. Nothing really interesting and the info you could find in some other places easily.
Chapter 4 (about organizational causes and failures ...
Mer) is quite good written and there are some useful information in chapter 6, and Chapter 8.
On an overall basis, I think the book is good for those who don't directly work with risk/reliability matters.
