Reliability, Maintainability and Risk has been updated to ensure that it remains the leading reliability textbook and cementing the book's reputation for staying one step ahead of the competition. This 6th edition incorporates brand new material on the accuracy of reliability prediction and common cause failure based on the author's PhD research work. David J. Smith approaches these subjects from an entirely original and unique viewpoint, emphasising that the need to demonstrate that safety-related systems have been assessed against target integrity levels is now commonplace in most industries, and the material contained in this book will address these growing needs. Reliability, Maintainability and Risk has now been established for over 20 years. It deals with all aspects of reliability, maintainability and safety-related failures in a simple and straightforward style, explaining technical terms and jargon and handling the imitations of reliability parameters. It pre-supposes no prior knowledge of the subject - the author deals with numerical data making realistic predictions using the minimum of mathematics. David J. Smith has written seven successful works on reliability, quality, maintainability, software and statistics and is past Chairman of the Safety and Reliability Society. He has been directly concerned with this branch of engineering in the telecommunications, electronics and oil and gas industries for over 25 years. He is well known for his many courses and workshops on reliability engineering and software quality and is in a unique position to provide much-needed information on a burgeoning subject area. Readers will be getting brand new and original information that they cannot get from any other title on the subject of Reliability, Maintainability and Risk. Author is well known and has an excellent track record in this area. He is regarded as highly "readable" and his writing concise and straightforward.

eliability and safety are fundamental attributes of any modern technological system. To achieve this, diverse types of protection barriers are placed as safeguards from the hazard posed by the operation of the system, within a multiple-barrier design concept. These barriers are intended to protect the system from failures of any of its elements, hardware, software, human and organizational. Correspondingly, the quantification of the probability of failure of the system and its protective barriers, through reliability and risk analyses, becomes a primary task in both the system design and operation phases. This exercise book serves as a complementary tool supporting the methodology concepts introduced in the books "An introduction to the basics of reliability and risk analysis" and "Computational methods for reliability and risk analysis" by Enrico Zio, in that it gives an opportunity to familiarize with the applications of classical and advanced techniques of reliability and risk analysis. This book is also available as a set with Computational Methods for Reliability and Risk Analysis and An Introduction to the Basics of Reliability and Risk Analysis.

Reliability is one of the most important attributes for the products and processes of any company or organization. This important work provides a powerful framework of domain-independent reliability improvement and risk reducing methods which can greatly lower risk in any area of human activity. It reviews existing methods for risk reduction that can be classified as domain-independent and introduces the following new domain-independent reliability improvement and risk reduction methods: Separation Stochastic separation Introducing deliberate weaknesses Segmentation Self-reinforcement Inversion Reducing the rate of accumulation of damage Permutation Substitution Limiting the space and time exposure Comparative reliability models The domain-independent methods for reliability improvement and risk reduction do not depend on the availability of past failure data, domain-specific expertise or knowledge of the failure mechanisms underlying the failure modes. Through numerous examples and case studies, this invaluable guide shows that many of the new domain-independent methods improve reliability at no extra cost or at a low cost. Using the proven methods in this book, any company and organisation can greatly enhance the reliability of its products and operations.
