Description

Aimed at all practising design engineers in the mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, electrical and civil engineering areas, this book covers the wide range of assurance technologies regarded by the author as essential for greater reliability and more accurate design and engineering. Its purpose is to unify all existing knowledge dealing with assurance technolgies in the design and manufacture of new products and technologies, give the reader an understanding of each technology, and provide guidance in interfacing among technologies. In the author's opinion the lack of interaction among technologies has allowed products and systems to fail in catastrophic ways - for example, at Three Mile Island - and he suggests many recent aircraft accidents may have been avoided if engineers and managers better understood the interplay between quality technology and human factors.
