How to design for optimum maintenance capabilities and minimize the repair time
Design for Maintainability offers engineers a wide range of tools and techniques for incorporating maintainability into the design process for complex systems. With contributions from noted experts on the topic, the book explains how to design for optimum maintenance capabilities while simultaneously minimizing the time to repair equipment.
The book contains a wealth of examples and the most up-to-date maintainability design practices that have proven to result in better system readiness, shorter downtimes, and substantial cost savings over the entire system life cycle, thereby, decreasing the Total Cost of Ownership. Design for Maintainability offers a wealth of design practices not covered in typical engineering books, thus allowing readers to think outside the box when developing maintainability design requirements. The book's principles and practices can help engineers to dramatically improve their ability to compete in global markets and gain widespread customer satisfaction. This important book:
• Offers a complete overview of maintainability engineering as a system engineering discipline
• Includes contributions from authors who are recognized leaders in the field
• Contains real-life design examples, both good and bad, from various industries
• Presents realistic illustrations of good maintainability design principles
• Provides discussion of the interrelationships between maintainability with other related disciplines
• Explores trending topics in technologies
Written for design and logistics engineers and managers, Design for Maintainability is a comprehensive resource containing the most reliable and innovative techniques for improving maintainability when designing a system or product.
