This book is aimed at readers who need to learn the latest solutions for interconnected simulation, testing, and prediction technologies that improve engineering product efficiency, including reliability, safety, quality, durability, maintainability, life-cycle costing and profit. It provides a detailed analysis of technologies now being used in industries such as electronics, automotive, aircraft, aerospace, off-highway, farm machinery, and others. It includes clear examples, charts, and illustrations.
This book provides analyses of the simulation, testing, and prediction approaches and methodologies with descriptive, negative trends in their development. The author discusses why many current methods of simulation, testing, and prediction are not successful and describes novel techniques and tools developed for eliminating these problems. This book is a tool for engineers, managers, researches in industry, teachers, and students.
Lev Klyatis, Hab. Dr.-Ing., ScD., PhD, Senior Advisor SoHaR, Inc., has been a professor at Moscow State Agricultural Engineering University, research leader and chairman of State Enterprise TESTMASH, and served on the US Technical Advisory Group for the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the ISO/IEC Join Study Group in Safety Aspects of Risk Assessment, the United Nations European Economical Commission, and US-USSR Trade and Economic Council.
