Abstract

In the past few decades, reliability has been widely recognized as of great importance in engineering product design and development. Hence, considerable advances have been made in the field of reliability-based design optimization (RBDO), resulting in new techniques for analyzing and improving the reliability of an engineered system, while taking into account various sources of uncertainty (e.g., material properties, loads, and geometric tolerances). Additionally, advanced maintenance strategies have been developed to help ensure systems operate reliably throughout their lifetime. This chapter introduces basic concepts of reliability, provides an overview of the history of reliability engineering, presents the way reliability efforts can be integrated into product design and development, and provides a framework for the material that will be covered in the subsequent chapters.
