5.0 out of 5 stars Great update to great text 8 April 2012
By Fred Schenkelberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The 5th edition contains significant updates and refreshes of many elements of the text. While Practical Reliability Engineering was already a must have reference for anyone working in the reliability profession, the update is required reading. I've long used this text as a goto reference for the myriad of tools, considerations, and references permitting me to solve problems. Now, it's a bit less slanted toward the old military handbooks, and a bit easier to read.

I highly recommend this one, even if you have an earlier edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for All Engineers 15 Jan 2013
By Andre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was exactly geared to my needs as a young engineer embarking on a career in reliability. The content was concise, clear while providing extensive breadth into the complex and most often misunderstood engineering discipline. This is a must read for all engineers! My only gripe is that I have struggled to obtain the solutions manual which accompanies this book (the web link reference quoted in the book failed to deliver !

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend 26 Aug 2012
By Peter Sandborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The title of this book accurately reflects what the book delivers. The book introduces the basic concepts of reliability engineering and demonstrates its application to a range of mechanical and electronic system examples. The 5th edition of Practical Reliability Engineering hits the mark by adding extensive software-based solutions to many of the already abundant example problems. The software-based solutions take the "practicality" of this already practical book to the next level. The new edition also includes new chapters on Monte Carlo analysis and reliability demonstration. Practical Reliability Engineering is a highly useable book that represents a worthwhile addition to both a student's and practitioner's reliability engineering resources. The book is solid and worth having even if you own an earlier edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything I needed! 26 Mar 2012
By Sir Lancelot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for a professional with minor experience in reliability analysis. This book offers valuable insight written from a first hand perspective.
4.0 out of 5 stars The section on markov-models and Monte-carlo simulations was good. 10 July 2014
By Barukasu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book covers many areas of reliability in a rushed way. The book does not teach any subject thoroughly but mentions it enough where you might get an idea of what the subject is about. The section on markov-models and Monte-carlo simulations was good.
