1 - 2 weeks availability


The book gives engineers the techniques and tools they need to use accelerated reliability testing (ART) and accelerated durability testing (ART) as key factors to accurately predict a product's quality, reliability, durability, and maintainability during given time (service life, warranty period, and other). The book covers a new ideas and unique approach to accurate simulation and integration of field inputs, safety, and human factors, as well as accelerated product development, as components of interdisciplinary systems engineering. Professionals will find in this book the answer how one can carry out ART and ADT technology in a practical manner. Learn how the implementation of ART and ADT can solve previously inaccessible problems in engineering, reduce product recalls, cost, and time during design, manufacture, and usage.
