1. “The Cost of Being Landlocked: Logistics Costs and Supply Chain Reliability (Directions in Development – Human Development)” by Jean-Francois Arvis and Gael Raballand

“The Cost of Being Landlocked: Logistics Costs and Supply Chain Reliability (Directions in Development – Human Development)” Book Review: This book is written for policy makers, supervisory authorities, and development agencies. The author talks about the high logistics costs in LLDCs that results in low logistics reliability and predictability, which stem from rent-seeking and governance issues in this book. The author has also included extensive data collection in several regions of the world and argues that landlocked developing countries do face high logistics costs and that these costs are not a result of poor road infrastructure, since transport prices largely depend on trucking market structure and implementation of transit processes.

“An Approach to Evaluate Integrated Human – Machine System Reliability” Book Review: This book is written for people looking for elaborate information on human and machine system reliability. The author of this book introduces a suggested procedure to calculate Integrated Human-Machine System Reliability (IHMSR) considering both human and machine roles and reliabilities. An extended approach is described in this book. This method is based on calculating the overall system reliability through integrating human reliability (measured using work performed, success rate and wasted time) and machine reliability (measured using production rate. It also takes into consideration the Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) and number of defectives). Reliability Block Diagram (RBD) is used to define human-machine interaction then IHMSR is calculated.
