Quality and Reliability in Engineering provides an integrated approach to quality specification, quality control and monitoring, and reliability. Examples and exercises stress practical engineering applications. Steps in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs. The book serves as a textbook for upper level undergraduate courses in quality and reliability in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, and industrial engineering programs. It can be used as a supplement to upper level capstone design courses, short courses for quality training, and as a learning resource for practicing engineers.

Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla has been a Professor and Founding Chair of Mechanical Engineering at Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey since 1995. He received his M.S. degree in design and manufacturing from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, and his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. He began his career as a design engineer with Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT), Bangalore. His first teaching post was at I.I.T., Bombay. He has also taught at the University of Kentucky, and GMI Engineering and Management Institute (Kettering University), before joining Rowan. Chandrupatla is author of Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering, Optimization Concepts and Applications in Engineering, and Finite Element Analysis for Engineering and Technology. The first book has been translated into Spanish, Korean, Greek, and Chinese languages. Chandrupatla's research interests include design, optimization, manufacturing engineering, finite element analysis, and quality and reliability. He published widely in these areas and serves as a consultant to industry. Chandrupatla is a registered Professional Engineer and also a Certified Manufacturing Engineer. He is a member of ASEE, ASME, SAE, and SME.
