It deals with all aspects of reliability, maintainability and safety-related failures in a simple and straightforward style, explaining technical terms and jargon and handling the imitations of reliability parameters. It pre-supposes no prior knowledge of the subject - the author deals with numerical data making realistic predictions using the minimum of mathematics. Smith has written seven successful works on reliability, quality, maintainability, software and statistics and is past Chairman of the Safety and Reliability Society.
He has been directly concerned with this branch of engineering in the telecommunications, electronics and oil and gas industries for over 25 years.

He is well known for his many courses and workshops on reliability engineering and software quality and is in a unique position to provide much-needed information on a burgeoning subject area. Readers will be getting brand new and original information that they cannot get from any other title on the subject of Reliability, Maintainability and Risk. Author is well known and has an excellent track record in this area.
He is regarded as highly "readable" and his writing concise and straightforward. Professional engineers of all disciplines, especially systems designers in most industries particularly oil and gas, rail, nuclear and military.
Student engineers, especially those with an interest in design, resource management and reliability. He has written numerous books on Reliability and Safety over the last 35 years. His PhD thesis was on the subject of reliability prediction and common cause failure.
David is past President of the Safety and Reliability Society. The book remains a good basic introduction.

Smith has provided a perfect means of understanding the principles behind basic reliability calculations, in a way that is neither condescending nor unnecessarily complex. I recommend this book in the strongest possible terms to readers interested in gaining a greater understanding of the world of reliability engineering without having to trawl through pages of postgraduate mathematics.
This book would make a good reference guide. Smith, is a highly useful and informative text. We are always looking for ways to improve customer experience on Elsevier.

To achieve this, diverse types of protection barriers are placed as safeguards from the hazard posed by the operation of the system, within a multiple-barrier design concept.
Reliability Engineering and Risk Analysis: A Practical Guide
These barriers are intended to protect the system from failures of any of its elements, hardware, software, human and organizational. Correspondingly, the quantification of the probability of failure of the system and its protective barriers, through reliability and risk analyses, becomes a primary task in both the system design and operation phases.
This exercise book serves as a complementary tool supporting the methodology concepts introduced in the books "An introduction to the basics of reliability and risk analysis" and "Computational methods for reliability and risk analysis" by Enrico Zio, in that it gives an opportunity to familiarize with the applications of classical and advanced techniques of reliability and risk analysis.
