My name is Daniel T. Daley. Friends call me Dan. I am from Omaha Nebraska. I attended the University of Nebraska and graduated in 1971 with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and a commission in the US Air Force. After serving a tour as an Air Force officer (in Selma Alabama and Osan Korea), I returned to school at the University of Missouri, Columbia. There I received a MS in Mechanical Engineering.
My career began with Shell Oil Company where I held a variety of positions in engineering, maintenance and operations. I held the position of Director of Maintenance and Reliability for several companies including Shell, OxyChem and Valero. I retired from Union Pacific railroad were I was the Director of Locomotive Engineering and Quality. For the last five years I have been providing consulting services through my company My Reliability Team based on concepts contained in my books to a variety of clients. I am always looking for more clients.
All of my assignments have focused on reliability and maintenance engineering. In these roles, I have had the opportunity to supervise some very good young engineers. During those experiences, there were frequent occasions I wished I have some brief yet direct books for them to use to supplement the person-to-person training I was providing. The books I have written are intended to fill that void.
Services in support of applying the concepts described in these books are available from My Reliability Team.
While there are few new topics, the author has compliled a compelling case for data governance associated with failure mitigation and risk managment. The book is technically flawed in not having an index of figures as two of the figures justify the purchase of the book alone.
A compelling, holestic view of the topic. A must have for beginners in this subject. A great reference and handout for SME's in this field of study.
