Responsible For Reliability? Look No Further! Finally, a working tool that delivers expert guidance on all aspects of product reliability. W. Grant Ireson and Clyde F Coombs, Jr.'s new Second Edition of Handbook of Reliability Engineering and Management gives you the specific engineering, management, and mathematics data you need to design and manufacture more reliable electronic and mechanical devices as well as complete systems. You'll find proven industry practices for defining and achieving reliability goals--real how-to information, not theoretical generalities. You also get new methods for determining overall product reliability. . .the latest design techniques for extending a product's life cycle. . .tested strategies for incorporating reliability into new product development. . .and more.
Clyde F. Coombs, Jr, (Los Altos, CA) recently retired from Hewlett-Packard. He is the editor of all five editions of the Printed Circuits Handbook, the first of which was published in 1967. He is also the editor of two editions of the Electronics Instrument Handbook and the communications Network Test and Measurement Handbook.
