From the reviews:

From the reviews:

The 100 international contributors to this book's 76 chapters provide depth and considerable diversity to the subject... Each chapter can be read independently and includes careful definitions and reviews of major topics and good descriptions of main methods... The editor's philosophy is to provide all engineers "with a wider vision of the requirement of sustainable and dependable products, systems, and services in the 21st century." This book provides a guide and reference for many of the engineering tools needed to accomplish this... Recommended.

 

Choice (August 2009) (Reviewer: S. A. Batterman, University of Michigan)

"The reader has a veritable garden from which to feast from this impressive collection of chapters."

 

Dr William Vesely, Manager, Risk Assessment, Office of Safety and Mission Assurance, NASA

"Clearly covers the entire canvas of performability: quality, reliability, maintainability, safety and sustainability."

 

Way Kuo, Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Reliability, President, City University of Hong Kong

Formally Dean of Engineering and University Distinguished Professor, University of Tennessee

"The book should be of interest for reliability researchers or instructors that need some additional material--such as examples or new trends--for intensive courses given in reliability engineering. ... the technical content is impressive and the vast diversity of areas covered can be perceived as its greatest advantage; it enables, for instance, networking reliability experts to get acquainted with the mechanics of software reliability, which can be quite inspiring."

2 ISSSR 2018: The 4th International Symposium on System and Software Reliability

Banner-ISSSR

Software and system reliability is the probability of failure-free software and system operation for a specified period of time in a specified environment. Reliability is also an important factor affecting software and system dependence. Many life-critical systems being required to operate without a system failure for a given period of time, such examples as nuclear, aerospace, spacecraft and high-speed trains and other such systems, need the development of reliability. This symposium provides scientists and engineers from both industry and academia a platform to present their ongoing work, relate their research outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient techniques for the development of reliable, secure, and trustworthy systems. It also represents an excellent opportunity for the academic community to become more aware of subject areas critical to the software industry as practitioners bring their needs to the table. The 2018 ISSSR will be held from June 21 to 22, 2018 in Chengdu sponsored by University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. Keynote .

1 Special Issue on Balancing Technology, Environment and Lifestyles

Special issue
on
Balancing Technology, Environment and Lifestyles

Technological progress may help improve the standard of living and the quality of life of modern societies. For this to be sustainable, technologies must essentially be environmental friendly, socially acceptable and economically viable (create jobs, distribute benefits, help eradicate poverty). The key aspects are the needs themselves (not all wants are needs), long-term perspectives and a comprehensive concept of development (as alternative to quantitative growth). This requires the integration of environmental, economic and social aspects and with an emphasis on long-term impacts and projections rather than immediate effects. This can be achieved by promoting investment in new clean technologies and services as well as consequent changes in lifestyles. Within the efforts to achieve sustainable development, the relationship between actions promoting sustainability and technological innovation is not unambiguous and calls for accurate assessment of benefits and costs.

We intend to bring out a special issue of the International Journal of Performability Engineering on this theme by selecting some papers from the contributed papers to the 3rd Annual European Postgraduate Symposium 2013 following a peer review process and the aim of this Special Issue is to raise awareness more specifically on linking technological innovations, environmental stewardship and sustainable lifestyles. For this reason we invite original research papers (including e.g., empirical analyses with hypotheses testing), methodological papers, case studies, reviews and short communications, on the following topics:

  • Product and Service Design for Environment, Environmental Regulations and Directives
  • Sustainable Production & Consumption Patterns
  • Energy Analysis and Energy Efficient Designs
  • Innovative Services, Techniques and Technologies for Performance Improvement
  • Quality Management and Certification
  • Waste Management
  • Environment Impact Assessment, Environmental and Ecological Risk Assessment, Environmental Certification
  • Sustainability Assessment, Metrics of Sustainability,
  • Economics of Sustainability, Clean and Sustainable Technologies
  • Economics of Life Cycle Activities, Internalization of Environmental Costs
  • Living Environment. Services-oriented versus product-oriented economy

3 Special Issue on Design of Products, Systems and Services for Dependability and Sustainability

Special issue
on
Design of Products, Systems and Services for Dependability and Sustainability

 

The International Journal of Performability Engineering (IJPE) is planning to bring out a special issue on the Design of Products, Systems and Services for Dependability and Sustainability. According to Handbook of Performability Engineering (Ed. Krishna B. Misra, Springer Verlag, 2008), for optimum performance, sustainability requirements should be addressed along with other factors such as quality, reliability, maintenance and safety. The objective is to produce products, systems and services that have built in quality, reliability, maintainability and safety, and are produced through clean production and technologies that result in minimal pollution, require minimum raw materials and energy and safe to dispose off or reuse at the end of their lives.

In today's highly competitive market, performance optimization has become an important factor in attaining competitiveness, profitability and increased customer satisfaction. Combined with the demand and regulatory push for sustainable products, it has become imperative to analyse and optimise systems performance over their life-cycle: from the design stage to the disposal stage (from cradle to grave) including end of life treatment such as reconditioning and reuse or recycle.

We invite original research papers, methodological papers, case studies, reviews and short communications on the theme of this special issue. Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Design for Dependable and Sustainable Products and Services
  • Sustainability and Dependability Assessment at the Design Stage, Metrics for Sustainability and Dependability Assessment
  • Design of Sustainable Distribution Systems with Forward and Reverse Flows
  • Failure Data Analysis and Condition Assessment Models for Recyclable End-of-life Products and Components
  • Testing of Reusable End-of-life Products and Components
  • Statistical Quality Control and Inspection Methods for Reverse Logistics
  • Reliability Assessment of Systems composed of Mixture of New and Refreshed Components
  • Remanufacturing Planning with Uncertain Quality and Unsteady supply of Materials
  • Optimal Maintenance Strategies for Reconditioned and/or Remanufactured Products
  • Warranty Models for Reconditioned and/or Remanufactured Products
