New book, How Reliable Is Your Product? 50 Ways to Improve Product Reliability by Mike Silverman, founder and managing partner at Ops A La Carte, provides hands on teaching principals, case studies and facts to help companies optimize the reliability of their products.
Monday, January 24 through Thursday, January 28, Mike will be in Orlando, FL, at the annual Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS) (http://rams.org) signing books. He will also have a book signing (http://www.meetup.com/HappyAbout/calendar/16117151) in Cupertino, CA, on March 22.
“I wrote the book with the core belief that engineers need practical experience and basic education about reliability, rather than volumes of theories and formulas,” said Silverman. “We compiled data from our work with more than 500 companies spanning 100 different industries to find the best practices and most efficient and effective ways to design or manufacture any product and optimize it to withstand the most critical testing.”
“Mike takes you on a guided tour of Design for Reliability techniques, which are interwoven with many fascinating and useful case studies that demonstrate how this approach has already benefited many organizations. He has gifted you with the tools to help make your great products better,” states Mark Turner, Director of Reliability, Enecsys.
How Reliable Is Your Product? 50 Ways to Improve Product Reliability is a unique book that covers examples from a number of core industries including aerospace, defense, clean technology, consumer electronics, medical, networking, oil and gas, semiconductor equipment, and telecommunications. It describes a number of situations and presents practical examples of what a reliability engineer should do to be successful. These 50 Ways are organized according to the phases of a project and a maturity matrix is presented as a means to measure progress. The many examples show proactive use of reliability tools for hardware and software. All are accompanied by concise case studies showing how to apply tools and handle common situations. It is a must read for all engineers and managers who are involved with corporate wide improvement efforts.
The book is described well in a promotional video at: 50Ways-TheVideo or on YouTube.
