Albert Myers retired as Chief Technology Officer for the Northrop Grumman Corporation and is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering. During his career he has had extensive experience in the development and qualification of digital flight control systems - including the N.A.S.A. F-8 Digital Fly-by-Wire Program, the world’s first digital fly-by-wire aircraft - and was the chief architect of the flight control system for the B-2 Stealth Bomber.
Complex System Reliability presents a state-of-the-art treatment of complex multi-channel system reliability assessment and provides the requisite tools, techniques and algorithms for designing, evaluating and optimizing ultra-reliable redundant systems.
The book's practical presentation includes numerous fully worked examples that provide detailed explanations of both the underlying design principles and the techniques (such as combinatorial, recursive and binary decision diagram algorithms) used to obtain quantitative results. Many of the worked examples are based on the design of military digital fly-by-wire control system technology.
Complex System Reliability provides in-depth coverage of systems subject to either perfect or imperfect fault coverage and also details the most recent techniques for correctly assessing the reliability of redundant systems that use mid-value-select voting as their primary means of redundancy management.
