Item description for Reliability Theory With Applications to Preventive Maintenance by I. B. Gertsbakh...
This textbook on Reliability Theory focusses on Applications in Preventive Maintenance (PM). All models are presented in connection with the relevant statistical material. Short and simply written the book is almost self-contained. The reader needs not more than basic knowledge of calculus, probability and statistics. Each chapter is concluded by a series of exercices with detailed solutions. Numerical solutions are elaborated with Mathematica software. Novel topics are discussed, like PM with learning, choice of the best time-scale for PM, handling multidimensional state description, dealing with uncertainty in data. The book is meant for graduate students, researchers and engineers specializing in Quality Control, Logistics, Reliability and Maintenance Engineering.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reliability Theory With Applications to Preventive Maintenance?
HIghly readable yet dense with theory Jul 16, 2002
Refreshingly well-written and organized. Good graphics and figures. Focuses on the main issues of maintanence strategy, both from a rigorous numerical point of view and a practical point of view. More discussion of general modeling techniques of entire systems would be useful, especially when considering the design phase of a life-cycle cost analysis.
Book review Jun 13, 2001
This modest and well organized book explores detailed case studies of the challenging area devoted to Reliability and Preventive Maintenance for practitioners, researchers and students specializing in Operations Research, Reliability, Quality Control and Logistics. An outstanding feature of the book is detailed numerical solutions to many problems solved with the help of Mathematica software. This makes easy for usage both by the lecturer and by the student. It may be highly recommended not only for the academic level and University libraries, but also for use by practitioners and we hope that the modest price of $74 is worth dealing with such an original and research priceless material, which is a valuable contribution to the fields of reliability and Preventive Maintenance research and studies.
