Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Absolutely excellent book. The best there is for a first comprehensive course on R & M." -- Kenneth Case, Oklahoma State University

"Every student of reliability and every reliability improvement professional should have this book at their fingertips. It is clearly written and focuses not only on the concepts of reliability but also on their application. The Excel templates provided with the book greatly assist in the learning process by doing the tedious computations." -- Paul J. Fields, Brigham Young University

"This is an outstanding text on the fundamentals of reliability and maintainability. The text is well organized and readable. The problems are appropriate in terms of quantity and difficulty." -- Stanley Bullington, Mississippi State University

"Ebeling communicates well, and the examples and problems are thought-provoking and well-chosen." -- Alan Johnson, Air Force Institute of Technology

The handbook edited by prof. Ebeling is a good resource to introduce the reliability problems.
The book has a mathematical structure, with very detailed demostrations of relations and formulas. However, differently from the main books treating the argument, Ebeling introduces a large number of solved exercises with practical cases.
However, the text, for me, it has two limitations. One minor and one major.
The first one is the absence to references to international standards of reliability (IEC 61508, IEC 61511, EN ISO 13849-1, etc.). But this is not very important.
The second one is most important: at the end of every chapter are suggested a lot of number of exercise WITHOUT solution. The solution manual is not available, for consultants, designers and engineers outside of academia, even for a fee. This is a ENORMOUS limit of the text, because most of the exercises have implications for the solution of technical and practical cases. And without these solutions, the text lacks a very important part, useful for all readers who use it for work, outside the University.

This textbook is very well-written and quite comprehensive. It also has great practice problems that you can work on to understand the material. HOWEVER, the textbook does not contain an answer key in the back. A call to the publisher (Waveland Press) made me aware that the answer key is only available to instructors in colleges if they can proove that they are using this book as the class textbook. To me this is a rip-off, because normally publishers provide answer keys upon request. In Summary: Great book, terrible publisher. Waveland Press sucks! How am I supposed to self-study without the answers???!!!

It has good information on how to quantify reliability. Largely based on US defence and aeronautical industry. Generally a good book
