One Line Description
This book explores the domain of reliability engineering for machine tools, both from manufacturer and users' point of view.

Audience
The volume is a useful resource for both academicians as well practitioners in the field of machine tool design, reliability engineering, maintenance planning and industrial engineering. The book can also be used as a post-graduate level textbook in these subjects.

Description
Machine Tool Reliability explores the domain of reliability engineering in the context of machine tools. Failures of machine tools not only jeopardize users’ ability to meet their due date commitments but also lead to poor quality of products, slower production, down time losses etc. Poor reliability and improper maintenance of a machine tool greatly increases the life cycle cost to the user. Thus, the application area of the present book, i.e. machine tools, will be equally appealing to machine tool designers, production engineers and maintenance managers. The book will serve as a consolidated volume on various dimensions of machine tool reliability and its implications from manufacturers and users point of view.
From the manufacturers’ point of view, it discusses various approaches for reliability and maintenance based design of machine tools. In specific, it discusses optimal reliability design, maintenance optimization, and cost based FMEA.
From the users’ point of view, it explores the role of machine tool reliability in shop floor level decision-making. In specific, it shows how to model the interactions of machine tool reliability with production scheduling, maintenance scheduling and process quality control.
