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 Reliability, Maintenance and Logistic Support - A Life Cycle Approach is to provide an integrated approach to reliability, maintainability, maintenance and logistic support analysis. We not only look at the ways we can improve the design process to ensure the product offers value for money, but we also consider 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: (1) Introduce the concepts of reliability, maintainability and supportability and their role in the system life cycle and effectiveness. (2) Introduce the basic probability and statistical techniques that are essential for modelling reliability, maintainability and supportability problems. (3) Introduce reliability measures: how to predict them; how to determine from in-service real-world data; how to use them. (4) Analysis of advanced models in Reliability. (5) Discuss basic and advanced concepts in both maintainability and maintenance including preventive, corrective and condition based maintenance. (6) Discuss maintenance management and optimization concepts, such as reliability-centered maintenance and age-related maintenance. (7) Provide basic concepts in supportability and Integrated logistic support. (8) Discuss techniques for design for reliability, maintainability and supportability. (9) Analysis of simple and advanced models in spares forecasting and optimization. (10) Discuss data analysis, data management and data mining techniques.

Maintainability is of crucial importance throughout industry and is established as one of the most important issues in the aerospace and defence arena. No new system can be introduced without full maintainability, analysis and demonstration; a type of analysis which reduces life cycle costs by decreasing operational and maintenance costs and increasing systems operational effectiveness, leading in turn to the creation of more competitive products. This book establishes the full methodology for maintainability mathematics and modelling, as well as the relationship between the maintainability and maintenance processes.

Failure of components or systems must be prevented by both designers and operators of systems, but knowledge of the underlying mechanisms is often lacking. Since the relation between the expected usage of a system and its failure behavior is unknown, unexpected failures often occur, with possibly serious financial and safety consequences. Principles of Loads and Failure Mechanisms. Applications in Maintenance, Reliability and Design provides a complete overview of all relevant failure mechanisms, ranging from mechanical failures like fatigue and creep to corrosion and electric failures. Both qualitative and quantitative descriptions of the mechanisms and their governing loads enable a solid assessment of a system’s reliability in a given or assumed operational context. Moreover, a unique range of applications of this knowledge in the fields of maintenance, reliability and design are presented. The benefits of understanding the physics of failure are demonstrated for subjects like condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, prognostics and health management, failure analysis and reliability engineering. Finally, the role of these mechanisms in design processes and design for maintenance are illustrated.

In this book the authors provide a fresh look at basic reliability and maintainability engineering techniques and management tools for ap plication to the system maintenance planning and implementation process. The essential life-cycle reliability centered maintenance (ReM) activities are focused on maintenance planning and the prevention of failure. The premise is that more efficient, and therefore effective, life-cycle main tenance programs can be established using a well disciplined decision logic analysis process that addresses individual part failure modes, their consequences, and the actual preventive maintenance tasks. This premise and the techniques and tools described emphasize preventive, not corrective, maintenance. The authors also describe the techniques and tools fundamental to maintenance engineering. They provide an understanding of the inter relationships of the elements of a complete ReM program (which are applicable to any complex system or component and are not limited only to the aircraft industry). They describe special methodologies for improving the maintenance process. These include an on-condition maintenance (OeM) methodology to identify defects and potential deterioration which can determine what is needed as a maintenance action in order to prevent failure during use.

From program scheduling,organizational interfacing, cost estimating, and supplieractivities, to maintainability prediction, task analysis, formaldesign review, and maintainability tests and demonstrations, itdescribes all the planning and organizational aspects ofmaintainability for projects under development and * Schools readers in state-of-the-art maintainability designtechniques * Demonstrates methods for quantitatively measuring maintainabilityat every stage of the development process * Shows how to increase effectiveness while reducing life-cyclecosts of already existing systems or products * Features numerous case studies, sample applications, and practiceexercises * Functions equally well as a professional reference and aclassroom text Independent cost analysis studies indicate that an inordinatelylarge percentage of the overall life-cycle cost of mostsystems/products is currently taken up by maintenance and support.In fact, for many large-scale systems, maintenance and support havebeen shown to account for as much as 60% to 75% of overalllife-cycle costs. At a time of fierce global competition, long-termcost effectiveness is a major competitive advantage thatmanufacturers simply cannot afford to underestimate. Clearly then,to remain competitive in today's international marketplace,companies must institute programs for reducing system maintenanceand support costs-- comprehensive programs that are an integralpart of the design and development process from its earliestconceptual stages. This book shows you how to implement such a program within yourorganization's design and development function. From programscheduling, organizational interfacing, cost estimating, andsupplier activities, to maintainability prediction, task analysis,formal design review, and maintainability tests and demonstrations,it describes all the planning and organizational aspects ofmaintainability for projects under development while schooling youin the use of the full range of proven design techniques--includingmethods for quantitatively measuring maintainability at every stageof the development process. The authors also clearly explain howthe principles and practices outlined in Maintainability can beapplied to the evaluation of systems/products now in use both toincrease their effectiveness and reduce long-term costs. While theoretical aspects of maintainability are discussed, theauthors' main purpose in writing this book is to help getprofessionals quickly on-line with the essential maintainabilityconcepts and skills. Hence, in addition to clarity of presentationand a rational hierarchical format, Maintainability features manycase studies and sample applications that help to clarify thepoints covered, and numerous practice exercises that help engineersto test their mastery of the concepts and techniques covered. Maintainability is an invaluable professional tool for engineersfrom all disciplines who are involved with the design, testing,prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of products andsystems. It also serves as a superior course book forgraduate-level programs in those disciplines.
