Providing a noticeably new procedure and expertise for surroundings reliability specifications, this terrific e-book additionally offers the 1st complete review of the M/F-FOP philosophy and its applications.

* each one bankruptcy covers probabilistic types, statistical and numerical systems, functions and/or case studies

* Comprehensively examines a brand new technique for challenge fixing within the context of actual reliability engineering problems

* All types were carried out in C++

* The algorithms and programming code provided can be utilized as a software program toolbox for surroundings MFFOP

* Case experiences are taken from the nuclear, car and offshore to supply 'real-world' applications.Content:
