Some engineering fields change dramatically from year to year, with radical breakthroughs in
technology happening often. These fields may have hundreds or more papers and texts published
each yearon the latest best practices. Maintenance engineering is a field which, for the most part,
hasn’t fundamentally changed much over the years. And there aren’t many sources for the latest
informationor best practices.
But in recent years, maintenance engineering has, more and more, put an emphasis on true reliability.
A business which is asset-intensive, such as manufacturing, relies on areliability-centered
field of engineering to be successful. In my opinion, reliability engineering itself has become a technology
used for the purpose of improving manufacturing capacity, without capitalinvestment.
The Maintenance Engineering Handbook has long been regarded as the premier source for
expertise on maintenance theory and practices for any industry. This text has been consideredinvaluable and now, this latest edition defines those practices that are critical to developing an
effective reliability engineering function within your business.
This text is no longer just aboutmechanical, electrical, and civil maintenance engineering.
Instead, the seventh edition also focuses on recognized and proven best practices in maintenance,
repair, and overhaul (MRO) inventorymanagement, root-cause analysis, and performance management.
Keith Mobley, the editor in chief of this text, has more than 35 years of direct experience in
corporate management, process and equipmentdesign, and reliability-centered maintenance
methodologies. For the past 16 years, he has helped hundreds of clients across the globe achieve
and sustain world-class performance through the implementationof maintenance and reliability
engineering principles.
You may spend your career worrying about excessive downtime and high maintenance costs as
a result of repetitive failures. As a fellow...
