Engineering a Safer World: Systems Thinking Applied to Safety
by Nancy G. Leveson
Publisher: The MIT Press 2012
Number of pages: 555
Revisiting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers in their System Safety concept, and testing her new model extensively on real-world examples, Leveson has created a new approach to safety that is more effective, less expensive, and easier to use than current techniques.

The scope of reliability engineering is extremely wide, encompassing many areas of engineering technology. Reliability engineering helps ensure the success of space missions, maintain the national security, provide reliable transportation, and so on.
The goal of this handbook is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. Many parts of the book feature case studies or examples with computations from the free downloadable software.
