Augustine’s Laws by Norman R. Augustine pdf free download

Augustine's Laws by Norman R. Augustine pdf free download

Description:

A top chief executive looks at the complexities and conundrums of today’s business management and offers solutions. Augustine sets forth 52 laws that cover every area of business in an entertaining, informative manner.

I would not have ever expected to find myself laughing out loud, nor even smiling often while reading a book that discusses government projects and corporations who contract them. Norman Augustine provides a clear and critical insight into the corporate-government affairs world with just enough graphs and charts to make it comprehensible yet not overbearing. I found it as light reading – which is a virtue on it’s own when reading about such complex a subject.
Norm Augustine has captured the government defense aerospace industry “sprawling on a pin” for dissection. In one particularly humorous bit he points out that just when the aerospace industry’s trend to more and more expensive combat aircraft looked like it might be stalled since adding weight is anathema to aircraft — along came something expensive and weightless to fill the gap — software! This is one terrific book! Just the figure showing there is no correlation between what executives are paid and the performance of their companies is worth the price of admission.
Accurate, Funny, and informative. This book captures the real (and not so real) world of government and other large projects spot on. Having been on both sides (NASA and contractor), there be truth in this wit. Enjoy. To be appreciated, best read while sitting on a $600 toilet seat.
This is a great tongue in cheek look at the aerospace and defense industry. Anyone that has spent even a few months supporting the DoD, large contractors, and aerospace companies will appreciate this book. Each chapter has a law and is written around explaining that law. While it is humorous it is also a little scary how accurate it is. This is one of my favorite books and I quote it often!

– Takes the reader from beginning to end and step-by-step through a Vulnerability Assessment
– Over 150 figures and tables to illustrate key concepts

Review

“As one reads this current book… it becomes apparent it is not for neophytes. This book … is for grown-ups. In fact, that formula, and the charts, forms, checklists that make up the seven appendices are the very real, very important take-aways obtained from the very real, but very worthwhile effort expended reading and understanding this book” — Canadian Security.

Stochastic Models in Reliability and Maintenance by Shunji Osaki pdf free download

Stochastic Models in Reliability and Maintenance by Shunji Osaki pdf free download

Description:

Our daily lives can be maintained by the high-technology systems. Computer systems are typical examples of such systems. We can enjoy our modern lives by using many computer systems. Much more importantly, we have to maintain such systems without failure, but cannot predict when such systems will fail and how to fix such systems without delay. A stochastic process is a set of outcomes of a random experiment indexed by time, and is one of the key tools needed to analyze the future behavior quantitatively. Reliability and maintainability technologies are of great interest and importance to the maintenance of such systems. Many mathematical models have been and will be proposed to describe reliability and maintainability systems by using the stochastic processes. The theme of this book is “Stochastic Models in Reliability and Main­ tainability. ” This book consists of 12 chapters on the theme above from the different viewpoints of stochastic modeling. Chapter 1 is devoted to “Renewal Processes,” under which classical renewal theory is surveyed and computa­ tional methods are described. Chapter 2 discusses “Stochastic Orders,” and in it some definitions and concepts on stochastic orders are described and ag­ ing properties can be characterized by stochastic orders. Chapter 3 is devoted to “Classical Maintenance Models,” under which the so-called age, block and other replacement models are surveyed. Chapter 4 discusses “Modeling Plant Maintenance,” describing how maintenance practice can be carried out for plant maintenance.

Review

From the reviews:

Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems by Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) pdf free download

Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems by Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) pdf free download

Description:

In recent years, process safety management system compliance audits have revealed that organizations often have significant opportunities for improving their Mechanical Integrity programs. As part of the Center for Chemical Process Safety’s Guidelines series, Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems provides practitioners a basic familiarity of mechanical integrity concepts and best practices. The book recommends efficient approaches for establishing a successful MI program.

Review

“…an excellent overview of all aspects of mechanical integrity systems…should be very useful for any engineer…” (Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries, January 2007)”…a thorough introduction to MI Systems for managers, quality control engineers and those who are responsible for maintaining systems.” (E-STREAMS, September 2007)

Excellent technical reference for anyone trying to implement or upgrade a mechanical integrity program. The section on equipment specific integrity management was exactly what I was looking for. It summarizes input from multiple standards and codes to provide a clear basis for how to justify what, how frequently and why you are doing the things in your mechanical integrity program. I wish someone had told me about this reference six months ago, it would have saved me a lot of work.

About the Author

Since 1985, the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) has been the world leader in developing and disseminating information on process safety management and technology.  CCPS, an industry technology alliance of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), has published over 80 books in its process safety guidelines and process safety concepts series.A team of CCPS member volunteer experts guided the development of this book, which was compiled by Randal Montgomery and Andrew Remson under contract. Messrs. Montgomery and Remson have helped facilities develop and implement MI programs and have instructed hundreds of engineers and process safety professionals on the topic.
