About the Authors
  • Quality and Reliability in Engineering provides an integrated approach to quality specification, quality control and monitoring, and reliability. Examples and exercises stress practical engineering applications. Steps in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs. The book serves as a textbook for upper level undergraduate courses in quality and reliability in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, and industrial engineering programs. It can be used as a supplement to upper level capstone design courses, short courses for quality training, and as a learning resource for practising engineers.

    • Over 150 illustrations integrated throughout the text
    • Practical problems integrating computer use
    • About 40 self contained computer programs in Microsoft Excel included on CD
    • All appendix tables are available on CD with active formulas
