A conversational time-sharing computer program called Relcomp can be used for rapid and economical calculation of the reliability and mean time between failures (MTBF) of systems consisting of serial and redundant units. Relcomp is simple to use and does not require any special knowledge of programming. A copy of the complete Relcomp program listing is provided in Tymshare Super Basic language. Use of the program to calculate the reliability and MTBF of a system, its subsystems, and blocks is illustrated by examples.
