Engineering Maintainability
by B.S. Dhillon, 350pp., 1999, ISBN: 088415257X
 To create a well-built product, engineers and designers must focus on maintainability.

The goal is design for reliable and cost- effective operation and straightforward maintenance. 

Engineering Maintainability helps you:

  • Improve product performance
  • Minimize downtime
  • Streamline maintenance
  • Reduce the frequency of maintenance
  • Lower the cost of maintenance tasks.


     This book is a detailed introduction to all the most important aspects of maintainability design and engineering. It provides the guidelines and fundamental methods of estimation and calculation needed by maintainability engineers. It also covers the management of maintainability efforts, including issues of organizational structure, cost, and planning processes.
     Engineers and managers will find this book an excellent reference. The questions and problems that conclude each chapter also make it appropriate for classroom use.
B. S. Dhillon, Ph.D.- is chairman of the department of mechanical engineering at the University of Ottawa. He has published widely on maintainability engineering and other engineering issues, and received numerous awards for his work in the fields of maintainability and reliability engineering
