Preventive maintenance engineering can significantly contribute to productivity and cost-reduction in any industry dependent upon machinery and equipment. This handbook provides a comprehensive guide to advanced strategies and procedures for this vital function.
Once equipment has been purchased, anywhere from four to forty times its purchase price may be spent on maintenance and repairs. The ability to monitor, quantify, and predict maintenance needs ensures the highest equipment availability at the lowest cost. Aimed at professional engineers and managers as well as students, the Maintainability, Availability, and Operational Readiness Engineering Handbook, Volume 1 includes problems, learning suggestions, and complete references. Practical examples, computer programs, and case studies provide a thorough treatment.
