Description - Reliability, Maintenance and Logistic Support by U.Dinesh Kumar

Reliability, maintainability and supportability play a crucial role in achieving a competitive product. While manufacturing costs are important for the success of a product, they are not the sole domains in realizing its competitive edge. Improved manufacturing and operating quality and performance coupled with reduced acquisition cost and in-service cost of ownership are important in achieving business success. It is the early phase of design which offers the greatest opportunity to address these requirements, and thus create life cycle effectiveness. The main objective of this work is to provide an integrated approach to reliability, maintainability, maintenance and logistic support analysis. It looks at the ways we can improve the design process to ensure the product offers value for money, and considers how the owners can get the most from these products once they have entered service. The approach provides a meaningful way of integrating reliability, maintenance and supportability to enhance the product performance and sales opportunities. Hence, the book covers the following objectives: introduces the concepts of reliability, maintainability and supportability and their role in the system life cycle and effectiveness; introduces the basic probability and statistical techniques that are essential for modelling reliability, maintainability and supportability problems; introduces reliability measures - how to predict them, how to determine from in-service real-world data and how to use them; analyzes advanced models in reliability; discusses basic and advanced concepts in both maintainability and maintenance including preventive, corrective and condition based maintenance; discusses maintenance management and optimization concepts, such as reliability-centered maintenance and age-related maintenance; provides basic concepts in supportability and Integrated logistic support; discusses techniques for design for reliability, matntainability and supportability; analyzes simple and advanced models in spares forecasting and optimization; and discusses data analysis, data management and data mining techniques.
