Summary Today, we are all strongly dependent on the correct functioning of technical systems. They fail, and we become vulnerable. Disruptions due to degradation or anomalous behavior can negatively impact safety, operations, and brand name, reducing the profitability of all elements of the value chain. This can be tolerated if the link between cause and effect is understood and remedied. This book was developed to propose solutions to this technical and business challenge, which has become less and less acceptable to the commercial aviation industry globally. Bringing together the areas of systems engineering and quality management, this unique book lists relevant terminology for consistent reporting, addresses the importance of "soft" human factors, and deals with aspects of availability and safety, operating policies, tools, diagnostic design, and the use of the right technology
