Title: Systems Failure Analysis
Author:  Joseph Berk
Format:  Book
Published:  2009

This book gives your product teams the tools and concepts to get at the root causes of defects and failures in complex manufacturing and engineered systems.  Whether the failure is a "show stopper"  that brings an organization to a halt, or if your team wants to find and correct root causes of unacceptable variations in a system, the methods described in Systems Failure Analysis can help you identify and evaluate all potential failure causes, not just by jumping to conclusions on the perceived obvious ones.  Quantifying the "hidden factory" of process variations also can help prevent failures and improve productivity and yields by reducing scrap or rework.

The techniques in Systems Failure Analysis focus on a team approach, and it is written as a practical reference for all members of your product or failure analysis team including:

  • Engineering
  • Quality assurance
  • Manufacturing technicians
  • Purchasing personnel
  • Field service personnel
  • Operators or other users
