About the book

Reliability remains insubstantial and invisible until the happening of a failure. It is difficult to rely on a system except its reliability can be justified and certified. Today the reliability is not limited to a specific industry but it involves all disciplines of engineering, science, and medicine. In order to enhance the reliability of a system, a multidimensional knowledge of statics, management, judgment, and motivational efforts is required.

This book aims to explain the industrial applications and modern techniques to understand the concept of safety, reliability and risk assessment in the areas of probabilistic safety assessment (PSA), risk monitoring, human reliability analysis (HRA), preventive maintenance, modeling methods, computational techniques, uncertainty analysis, estimation of reliability parameters, generic & specific data analysis and qualitative & quantitative risk measures. The book also aims to provide a pathway towards the innovation of the implementation of reliability knowledge to improve the safety of complex systems.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
