During day-to-day use, thousands of lives are lost each year due to accidents, directly or indirectly, resulting from poor transportation system reliability and safety. In the United States, automobile accidents alone result in around 42,000 deaths per year, costing billions of dollars to the economy each year. A common subject in journal articles and conference proceedings, most of the recent research on transportation systems reliability and safety is scattered in different resources. Until now. Drawing together the latest research spread throughout the literature, Transportation Systems Reliability and Safety eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources to obtain up-to-date information and research. It contains a chapter on mathematical concepts and another chapter on reliability and safety basics that form a foundation for understanding the contents of subsequent chapters. The book also presents a chapter devoted to methods for performing transportation system reliability and safety analysis. It includes a reference section at the end of each chapter for readers who wish to delve deeper into a specific area. The author clearly and concisely covers topics in such a manner that readers require no previous knowledge to understand the concepts. He provides examples and their solutions as well as numerous problems at the end of each chapter to test reader comprehension. The presentation of historical information paired with recent research give readers a foundation for understanding where the field is now and snapshot of where it may be going.

Many of these systems are highly sophisticated and contain millions of parts. For example, a Boeing jumbo 747 is made up of approximately 4.5 million parts including fasteners. Needless to say, reliability, safety, and maintenance of systems such as this have become more important than ever before.? Global competition and other factors are forcing manufacturers to produce highly reliable, safe, and maintainable engineering products. Therefore, there is a definite need for the reliability, safety, and maintenance professionals to work closely during design and other phases. Engineering Systems Reliability, Safety, and Maintenance: An Integrated Approach eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources in the hunt for the information required to design better engineering systems.

In an approach that combines coverage of safety and human error into a single volume, Safety and Human Error in Engineering Systems eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources for those who need information about both topics. The book begins with an introduction to aspects of safety and human error and a discussion of mathematical concepts that builds understanding of the material presented in subsequent chapters. The author describes the methods that can be used to perform safety and human error analysis in engineering systems and includes examples, along with their solutions, as well as problems to test reader comprehension. He presents a total of ten methods considered useful for performing safety and human error analysis in engineering systems. The book also covers safety and human error transportation systems, medical systems, and mining equipment as well as robots and software. Nowadays, engineering systems are an important element of the world economy as each year billions of dollars are spent to develop, manufacture, and operate various types of engineering systems around the globe. A rise in accidental deaths has put the spotlight on the role human error plays in the safety and failure of these systems. Written by an expert in various aspects of healthcare, engineering management, design, reliability, safety, and quality, this book provides tools and techniques for improving engineering systems with respect to human error and safety.

Authored by two acknowledged leaders in the field of reliability analysis, the original version of this book has become both a classic text within mathematics and engineering departments in universities in Norway and Sweden, and a standard reference in companies throughout Scandinavia. Updated and expanded and available for the first time in English, System Reliability Theory offers a balanced presentation of both theory and practice, making it an ideal introduction to reliability analysis for both industrial statisticians and engineers. Comprehensive in scope, the methods and models the authors describe may be applied to the full range of technical systems - everything from offshore oil platforms and nuclear power plants, to manufacturing systems and public transportation systems - and are equally applicable to complete systems as well as specific subsystems such as fire and gas safety systems and emergency shutdown systems. The first half of the book begins with simple systems and constitutes a comprehensive elementary introduction to reliability theory. Chapters here are devoted to situations in which the stated variables of components and systems are binary and independent. Major topics covered are failure models, qualitative system analysis, component importance, and elementary life data analysis. Following chapters cover more complex situations in which the components and systems may be in a number of different states; renewal theory; dependent failures; life data analysis; accelerated life testing; and Bayesian reliability analysis. In addition to the many worked examples appearing throughout the text, each chapter concludes with a problems section which provides exercises andpresents additional material on applications. An ideal reference for industrial statisticians and engineers working in the field of reliability and safety, System Reliability Theory is also a superior introductory text for graduate students in statistical mathematics and engineering.
