Handbook of Performability Engineering
|Country of Origin||India|
Performability engineering provides us with the framework to consider both dependability and sustainability for the optimal design of products, systems or services. Whereas dependability is an aggregate of one or more of the attributes of survivability (such as quality, reliability, and maintainability etc.) and safety, and the present designs based on dependability and life cycle costs cannot be really called truly optimal since these attributes are strongly influenced by the design, raw materials, fabrication, techniques and manufacturing processes employed, and their control and usage. Therefore, sustainability, characterized by dematerilization, energy and waste minimization, disposability, reuse and recycling and other the environmental considerations which help in clean production, must be considered along with dependability. Design of 21st?Century products, systems and services must conform to performability designs. More so when world resources are on the decline and to keep pace with rising population, the increased volume of production is bound to affect the world?? environmental health further. The?Handbook of Performability Engineering?considers all aspects of performability engineering, providing a holistic view of the entire life cycle of activities of the product, along with the associated cost of environmental preservation at each stage, while maximizing the performance.
