About this book

New, global and extended markets are forcing companies to process and manage increasingly different products with shorter life cycles, low volumes and reduced customer delivery times. In today’s global marketplace production systems need to deliver products on time, maintain market credibility, and introduce new products and services faster than competitors. As a result, a new production system paradigm has been developed and a supporting management decision-making approach, which simultaneously incorporates design, management, and control of the production system, is necessary in order for this challenge to be met effectively and efficiency.

Maintenance for Industrial Systems addresses this need by introducing an original and integrated idea of maintenance: maintenance for productivity. The volume starts with the introduction and discussion of a new conceptual framework based on productivity, quality, and safety supported by maintenance. Subsequent chapters illustrate the most relevant models and methods for planning, organising, implementing and controlling the whole maintenance process. Several examples of problems supported by solutions, and real applications to help and test the reader’s comprehension are included.

Maintenance for Industrial Systems is a valuable source of information for engineering students, doctoral and post-doctoral students, and also for maintenance practitioners and managers of industrial or service companies.

Springer Series in Reliability Engineering publishes high-quality books in important areas of current theoretical research and development in reliability, and in areas that bridge the gap between theory and application in areas of interest to practitioners in industry, laboratories, business, and government.

About the authors

Dr Riccardo Manzini is a professor of Logistics and Reliability & Maintenance in the Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bologna, Italy. His academic research principally deals with planning, design and control of production systems with particular reference to reliability modelling and maintenance system management and optimisation. He has carried out several research projects in co-operation with - and funded by - private and public companies on logistics, industrial plants and maintenance problems. He is the author of about 70 published papers on production systems, logistics and reliability, and a referee of several ISI journals.

Dr Alberto Regattieri is a professor in the Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bologna, Italy. He received his PhD from Parma University. His current research interests include the optimal design of complex production systems; reliability modelling of production systems; and the maintenance of industrial plants. In 2005 he received the Williamson Award Emerald Literati Club for his studies. He has authored or co-authored several books and over 70 technical publications. He manages a Masters course in Maintenance Engineering at the University of Bologna and has carried out several research projects in co-operation with - and funded by - large private and public companies on maintenance problems in Italy.

Dr Hoang Pham is a professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rutgers University, Piscataway. Before joining Rutgers, he was a senior engineering specialist at the Boeing Company and the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. His current research includes system reliability modelling; maintenance; and environmental risk assessment. He is the author of three textbooks, 30 book chapters and has published more than 150 papers. He is the editor of two handbooks and more than 10 books; the editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Reliability, Quality and Safety Engineering; associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics Part A; editor of Springer Series in Reliability Engineering; and a fellow of the IEEE.

Dr Emilio Ferrari is a full professor in industrial logistics in the Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bologna. His current research mostly includes industrial logistics and industrial plants maintenance, design and management. He is the author of more than 70 publications. At the Faculty of Engineering he is currently chairman of the undergraduate course in Engineering and Management, director of the Masters degree in Integrated Logistics, director of the international summer school Francesco Turco and director of the Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The title of this book is misnomer. This book is useful not only to maintenance engineers as is being claimed but to other engineers as well. In fact the reviewer feels that the title could have been as well a Handbook of System Dependability as the book covers not only system maintenance but also topics like quality management systems, statistical quality control, reliability, safety and risk assessment etc.... The book covers a wide area of modeling and is quite informative and as such the book should serve as a guide to the beginners or engineering students who would like to know various aspects of modeling for dependability in a compact form. The reviewer feels that the book can serve as good source of information on system dependability modeling." K.B. Misra, Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Performability Engineering (May 2010) Vol. 6, No. 3
