Recommended books for Maintenance Reliability Engineering

  1. 1. fmsreliability.com http://www.fmsreliability.com/education/recommended-books-maintenance-reliability-engineering/ Fred Recommended books for Maintenance Reliability Engineering Recently I asked for recommendations for maintenance reliability engineering books. The following list, in no order, are the recommendations. Thanks to all the participated. Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) uses R&M data to support maintenance planning. A good book on ILS follows: Integrated Logistics Support Author James V. Jones 1987, TAB Books Inc. These books may not satisfy everyone’s definition of “practical point of view,” but that’s what their authors thought might be “practical”. Optimal Replacement Policy, D. W. Jorgenson, J. JH. McCall, and R. Radner, North Holland, 1967 Models of Preventive Maintenance, Ilya B. Gertsbakh, North Holland, 1977 Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability … several by Andrew Jardine and Albert H. C. Tsang Introduction to Reliability and Maintainability Engineering by Charles Ebeling. Ebeling presents RMA with a balance of rigor (foundations) with application (that includes meaningful examples). I recently found a book which I think its got ‘everything’ in RMA and that is Handbook of Performability Engineering by Krishna B. Misra. Other books I found very helpful are: Reliability Maintainability and Risk 8th edition by David J Smith, Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices by Ramesh Gulati and Ricky Smith. Patrick D ‘ Oconnor’ s Practical Reliability Engineering book is also good in a number of topics. There is one book not popular by John Davidson called The Reliability of Mechanical Systems. The book is good for those in MRA of mechanical systems and components. I like his approach to FTA, RBDs, and FMECA. Of course the bible immediately came to mind; Reliability-centered Maintenance by Nowlan and Heap. A couple of my favorites are: Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) : Implementation Made Simple by Neil B. Bloom Making Common Sense Common Practice, Fourth Edition: Models for Operational Excellence by Ron Moore Good to see the good/recommended books, I have used the Handbook of Reliability Engineering and Management by Grant Ireson and C Commbs,
  2. 2. Practical Reliability Engineering by Patrick O’Connor, Applied Reliability by Paul Tobias and David Trindade. Sometimes one source provides better explanation and/or detail than other(s) on specific topic; it is good to know where to find specific references. Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices by R J Gulati Of course there are more good ones out there – please comment with which you grab most often.
