UTILIZE THE LATEST SUPPORTABILITY TOOLS AND METHODS TO DESIGN DURABLE AND MAINTAINABLE SYSTEMS Engineers in both the commercial and military sectors can rely on the Supportability Engineering Handbook for complete support criteria that ensure the performance of products ranging from automobiles to spacecraft. This one-of-a-kind resource offers the latest supportability tools and methods for designing systems that will last a long time and be easy to maintain in actual use. World-renowned supportability and logistics expert James V. Jones shows readers how to create supportable design solutions through effective system architecting, system and design engineering, and integration. He fully analyzes reliability, maintainability, and testability, and also explores every aspect of supportability. In addition, the author presents detailed coverage of reliability-centered maintenance... safety and human factors engineering... cost of ownership... supportability assessment and testing... configuration management and control... and much more.
