Software Reliability Assessment with OR Applications is a comprehensive text on software engineering and applied statistics, state-of-the art software reliability modeling, techniques and methods for reliability assessment, and related optimization problems. It addresses various topics, including:unification methodologies in software reliability assessment; application of neural networks to software reliability assessment;software reliability growth modeling using stochastic differential equations;software release time and resource allocation problems; andoptimum component selection and reliability analysis for fault tolerant systems.
Software Reliability Assessment with OR Applications is designed to cater to the needs of software engineering practitioners, developers, security or risk managers, and statisticians. It can also be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in software reliability, industrial engineering, and operations research and management.
Maintenance for Industrial Systems addresses this need by introducing an original and integrated idea of maintenance: maintenance for productivity. The volume starts with the introduction and discussion of a new conceptual framework based on productivity, quality, and safety supported by maintenance. Subsequent chapters illustrate the most relevant models and methods for planning, organising, implementing and controlling the whole maintenance process. Several examples of problems supported by solutions, and real applications to help and test the reader’s comprehension are included.
Maintenance for Industrial Systems is a valuable source of information for engineering students, doctoral and post-doctoral students, and also for maintenance practitioners and managers of industrial or service companies.
