An integral part of any engineering or manufacturing process is a continuous process of assessing its safety and reliability. This work provides a guide to the practical application of safety and reliability principles wherever risk is a consideration. The theory and mathematics are kept to a minimum, whilst a practical working model of the technology is presented for everyone involved in general engineering disciplines. It reduces the high cost of using professional consultant practitioners, introduces an advanced methodology of common mode failure analysis and modelling, with potential savings on system capital costs, and provides an illustration of working principles by graded tutorial projects.
