Of the billions of dollars spent on plant management and operation annually, an estimated 80% of the total amount is spent to rectify the chronic failure of systems, machines, and humans. Although information on human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance is scattered throughout journals and proceedings, no single resource covers all of these topics within a maintenance safety framework. Consulting different and diverse sources can not only make finding information laborious and time consuming, but also cause delays on the job.





Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance with Reference to Aviation and Power Generation provides engineers a tool for meeting the increasing problem of human error. Drawing on a myriad of sources, the book provides quick and easy access to information that can then be immediately applied to actual problems in the field. It includes examples and their solutions to illustrate engineering safety management at work and gives readers a view of the intensity of developments in the area.





The author's clear, concise, user-friendly style breaks the information down into understandable and applicable concepts. This book not only provides up-to-date coverage of the on-going efforts in human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance, but also covers useful developments in the general areas of human factors, reliability, and error. This information can then be translated into increased maintenance safety that has a positive impact on the bottom line.
