    Hi, I’m looking for books talking about reliability statistics, prediction and accelerated testing.
    There are just too many available and not able to figure out which one to pick.
    Can anyone can help by suggesting books for beginners in the above mentioned fields ?
    thanks,Arun

    Arun, I don’t know your actual level, but for real beginner I can suggest this very basic book (and very low cost) on BOL :            Realiability Theory and Practice Igor Bazovsky
    Or better you can start taking a, free, look here: http://directory.google.com/Top/Science/Technology/Reliability_Engineering/

    Arun,
    Another good “basics” book is Practical Reliability Engineering by Patrick O’Connor.  Good coverage of the material and clearly (minimum jargon) written…
    Hope this helps….
    Best Regards,

    Consider Statistical Methods for Reliability Data by Meeker & Escobar. This book is more focused on the analysis of reliability data.
    O’Connor’s book is more focused on how to setup engineering and management systems that result in reliable products, though it does cover some basic analysis techniques.
    Also consider the on-line resource http://www.weibull.com . It provides a wealth of information at no extra cost.
