Titolo: Complex System Maintenance Handbook
Casa editrice: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Apr 2008
Data di pubblicazione: 2008
Condizione libro: Neu
Neuware - This utterly comprehensive work is thought to be the first to integrate the literature on the physics of the failure of complex systems such as hospitals, banks and transport networks. It has chapters on particular aspects of maintenance written by internationally-renowned researchers and practitioners. This book will interest maintenance engineers and managers in industry as well as researchers and graduate students in maintenance, industrial engineering and applied mathematics. The efficient functioning of modern society depends on the smooth operation of many complex systems which provide products and services. These include transport systems, communication systems, utilities, manufacturing plants, processing plants, hospitals and banks. Such systems are unreliable in the sense that they degrade with age and/or usage and fail when they are no longer capable of delivering the products and services. When a complex system fails, the consequences can be dramatic. It can result in serious economic losses, affect humans and do serious damage to the environment. These failures can be controlled through preventive maintenance actions. Due to advances in the understanding of the physics of failure, and in the technologies used to combat this failure; the literature on maintenance of unreliable systems is vast. Complex System Maintenance Handbook is the first book to integrate this vast literature with chapters written by internationally-renowned active researchers and experienced practitioners focussing on different aspects of maintenance. Each chapter will review the literature dealing with a particular aspect of maintenance, report on developments and trends in a particular industry sector or present a case study. Complex System Maintenance Handbook narrows the gap between theory and practice and will trigger new research on different aspects of maintenance. It will be of interest to maintenance engineers and managers working in industry as well as researchers and graduate students in the fields of maintenance, industrial engineering and applied mathematics. 657 pp. Englisch.

Riassunto: The efficient functioning of modern society depends on the smooth operation of many complex systems including transport and communication systems, manufacturing and processing plants, utilities, hospitals and banks. Such systems are unreliable because they degrade with age and/or usage and fail when no longer capable of delivering the products/services. The consequences of a failed complex system can be dramatic (e.g. economic losses). These failures can be controlled by preventive maintenance actions. Advances in the understanding of the physics of failure, and in the technologies used to combat this failure have resulted in a vast literature on this topic. This book is the first to integrate this literature with chapters on a particular aspect of maintenance written by internationally-renowned researchers and practitioners. This book will interest maintenance engineers and managers in industry as well as researchers and graduate students in maintenance, industrial engineering and applied mathematics.
