Abstract:

The handbook was prepared by the U. S. Army Management Engineering Training Agency. It is intended to serve as a guide for project and commodity managers and professional personnel in the planning, direction, and monitoring of reliability programs. The format of the handbook is such that there are seven basic chapters with appendixes topically aligned to each. The material in the chapters is in narrative form and provides a simple, straightforward approach to the life cycle aspects of reliability without resorting to language of a mathematical or highly technical nature. Included in each chapter are topics which should be considered for that phase of the reliability program in the product life cycle. The discussion which follows each of these topics contains a brief explanation to provide guidance for the development, monitoring, or evaluation of reliability as it pertains to that element of total system performance. The appendixes contain technical discussions and mathematical treatments of techniques as they apply to the narrative in the chapters. Examples, applications, and solutions are included.
