Description : The Network Defense Series from EC-Council | Press is comprised of 5 books designed to educate learners from a vendor-neutral standpoint how to defend the networks they manage. This series covers the fundamental skills in evaluating internal and external threats to network security and design, how to enforce network level security policies, and how to ultimately protect an organization's information. The books in the series cover a broad range of topics from secure network fundamentals, protocols & analysis, standards and policy, hardening infrastructure, to configuring IPS, IDS, firewalls, bastion host and honeypots. Learners completing this series will have a full understanding of defensive measures taken to secure their organization's information, and along with the proper experience these books will prepare readers for the EC-Council Network Security Administrator (E|NSA) certification. Understanding the threats to an organization's infrastructure as well as internal policies and mechanisms used to defend the infrastructure is an integral part to a Network Security Administrator's role. This book, the second in the series, is designed to cover a broad range of topics from a vendor-neutral perspective preparing the Administrator to implement and enforce policies that leverage not only the knowledge of how these threats can materialize, but also the mechanisms used prevent them.

Description : The field of maintenance is hard to approach because the language is strange. This book introduces the fundamentals of maintenance and will allow the outsider to understand the jargon. The book offers a complete survey of the field, a review of maintenance management, a manual for cost reduction, a primer for the stock room, and a training regime for new supervisors, managers and planners.
Description : Planning and Control of Maintenance Systems is the first book to address maintenance and repair from an engineering perspective. Using the innovative concept of total productive maintenance (TPM) and written by three renowned experts in statistics, operations research, and engineering, it is an essential tool for planning a maintenance system using statistical and optimization techniques in order to avert equipment failure. Suitable for engineers and managers in capital-intensive industry, as well as for first-year graduate students and undergraduates in mechanical or industrial engineering.
Description : Many serious accidents have happened in the world where systems have been large-scale and complex, and have caused heavy damage and a social sense of instability. Furthermore, advanced nations have almost ?nished public inf- structureandrushedintoamaintenanceperiod.Maintenancewillbemore- portant than production, manufacture, and construction, that is, more ma- tenance for environmental considerations and for the protection of natural resources. From now on, the importance of maintenance will increase more and more. In the past four decades, valuable contributions to maintenance policies in reliability theory have been made. This book is intended to s- marize the research results studied mainly by the author in the past three decades. The book deals primarily with standard to advanced problems of main- nance policies for system reliability models. System reliability can be mainly improved by repair and preventive maintenance, and replacement, and rel- bility properties can be investigated by using stochastic process techniques. The optimum maintenance policies for systems that minimize or maximize appropriate objective functions under suitable conditions are discussed both analytically and practically. The book is composed of nine chapters. Chapter 1 is devoted to an int- duction to reliability theory, and brie?y reviews stochastic processes needed for reliability and maintenance theory. Chapter 2 summarizes the results of repair maintenance, which is the most basic maintenance in reliability. The repair maintenance of systems such as the one-unit system and multiple-unit redundant systems is treated. Chapters 3 through 5 summarize the results of three typical maintenance policies of age, periodic, and block replacements.

Description : This comprehensive, student friendly book is intended as a tool to achieve quality in organizations. Completing a course based on topics covered in this book will make one confident enough to implement quality management principles in a given situation. A holistic approach, practical relevance, effective learning and a compendium of A to Z of TQM distinguish this well-written text. Inclusion of the findings of research carried out by the authors in industries and educational institutions add flavour to the book. Various examples are drawn from institutional experience, which make the understanding of the concepts easy. The special feature of this book is that every chapter has a case study, in addition to a host of short questions and summary type questions. The questions for group discussion, practical exercises and net based exercises given at the end of every chapter are unique. Intended primarily as a textbook for engineering and management students, this book would also be useful for the in-house training of engineers and managers of various industries and organizations on TQM. The book may be effectively used as a resource material for quality professionals and consultants.
Description : Based on the results of research in physical asset management, Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability: Theory and Applications introduces students to the tools for making data-driven decisions and how to use them. The book offers a solid theoretical foundation for these tools, demonstrating applications through various case studies. Firmly rooted in reality, the applications covered relate to areas such as food processing, the military, mining, transportation, steel, and petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries. Ideal for classroom use, this text features supplementary software that can be downloaded from the CRC Web site. The downloadable educational versions of software packages include: OREST, SMS, EXAKT for CBM optimization, PERDEC, Workshop Simulator, Crew Size Optimizer, and WiebullSoft. This book can be used as a textbook for a one-semester senior undergraduate or postgraduate course on maintenance decision analysis. It provides problem sets with answers at the end of each chapter, an extensive set of PowerPoint slides covering the various chapters and appendices, a solutions manual for the problems in the book, and a bank of more than 100 examination questions. Instructors who adopt the book can obtain these resources at www.crcpress.com. The authors approach the topic with the ideology that mathematical modeling is not a spectator sport. Their examination of the underpinning theories for formulating models and exploration of real-world applications make the book both informative and practical. It provides professors with the tools they need to easily teach their students how to transform data into information.
