About this book

This book considers all aspects of performability engineering, providing a holistic view of the activities associated with a product throughout its entire life cycle of the product, as well as the cost of minimizing the environmental impact at each stage, while maximizing the performance. Building on the editor's previous Handbook of Performability Engineering, it explains how performability engineering provides us with a framework to consider both dependability and sustainability in the optimal design of products, systems and services, and  explores the role of performability in energy and waste minimization, raw material selection, increased production volume, and many other areas of engineering and production.

The book discusses a range of new ideas, concepts, disciplines, and applications in performability, including smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0; cyber-physical systems and artificial intelligence; digital transformation of railways; and asset management.

Given its broad scope, it will appeal to researchers, academics, industrial practitioners and postgraduate students involved in manufacturing, engineering, and system and product development.

About the authors

Dr. Krishna B. Misra (b.1943) is a retired eminent Professor of the Indian Institute of Technology and an internationally respected scholar, who has been involved in the field of reliability for over five decades. In 1983, he was presented with the very first Lal C. Verman award by The Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers for his contributions in reliability engineering. In 1995 Professor Misra was awarded a plaque by the IEEE Reliability Society “in recognition of his meritorious and outstanding contributions to reliability engineering and furthering of reliability engineering education and development in India.” In 2005, after retiring from IIT, Kharagpur, where he established the first-ever postgraduate course on reliability engineering in India in 1982, and the Reliability Engineering Centre in 1983, he launched the International Journal of Performability Engineering from Jaipur, India and has since led the journal as its Founder Editor-in-Chief. He has published over 250 papers in leading international journals and five books. He was elected a Fellow of Safety & Reliability Society (U.K.) in 1981. He is Fellow of Indian Academy of Science (1983) as well as India n National Academy of Engineering (1995).
