Description

The intent of this book is to present technical information that reliability practitioners need for use on various different Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM or using the umbrella word, Dependability) analyses that may not be found in technical textbooks but are available in various standards. Globally, Dependability is frequently not a part of the technical curricula offered in college educations and when it is, the breath of information may be confined to selected models, topics and practices, whilst others may not be fully addressed or even covered. The book will offer a brief introduction to RAM Engineering topics and deliverables. It will also provide information on the most common standard bodies that have published significant resources for those deliverables including analysis methods and key models. Each clause and topic will refer to appropriate and applicable standards with an assessment of their applicability and relevance; the industries their standards are tailored for; the strengths and weaknesses. Skills, data, and knowledge required to effectively use the standard including ease of understanding will also be addressed.
