    Reliability and maintenance modeling with optimization is the most fundamental and interdisciplinary research area that can be applied to every technical and management field. Reliability and Maintenance Modeling with Optimization: Advances and Applications aims at providing the most recent advances and achievements in reliability and maintenance.

    The book discusses replacement, repair, and inspection, offers estimation and statistical tests, covers accelerated life testing, explores warranty analysis manufacturing, and includes service reliability.

    The targeted readers are researchers interested in reliability and maintenance engineering. The book can serve as supplemental reading in professional seminars for engineers, designers, project managers, and graduate students.
