Testing is the most expensive, time-consuming and difficult activity in the development of engineering products and systems. Many industrial testing practices are based upon traditional standards and procedures that fail to provide the optimum balance of assurance versus cost and time. Presenting a consistent philosophy of test engineering, this book is the first of its kind to describe the broad spectrum of modern methods and technologies.
This valuable reference will aid engineers who must manage and conduct the difficult and uncertain tasks of testing new designs and products. The unique and readable style makes this an indispensable text for all engineering students.

  • A multi-disciplinary approach to test engineering including test economics and management.
  • Practical, concise descriptions of the methods and technologies in modern mechanical, electronics and software testing, including accelerated test.
  • Insights into the developing interface between modern design analysis methods and testing practice.
  • An explanation of why products and systems fail, which testing methods are appropriate to each stage of the product life cycle and how testing can reduce failures.
  • An overview of international testing regulations and standards.
