visión de conjunto:Reseña del editor The Handbook of RAMS in Railway Systems: Theory and Practice addresses the complexity in today's railway systems which use computers and electromechanical components to increase efficiency while ensuring a high level of safety. RAM (Reliability Availability Maintainability) addresses the specifications and standards that manufacturers and operators have to meet. Modeling implementation and assessment of RAM and safety requires the integration of railway engineering systems; mathematical and statistical methods; standards compliance; and financial/economic factors. This Handbook brings together a group of experts to present RAM and safety in a modern comprehensive manner. Biografía del autor
