In the paper on Generic rules to evaluate system-failure frequency, (see ibid., vol.49, p.85-7, 2000) the authora did not consider the case of shorter mission times while presenting the rules to evaluate system-failure frequency. Time-specific failure-frequency calculations are required for the systems with shorter mission times. One of the practical uses of time-specific failure-frequency is in finding reasonably accurate estimates of failure-rate and reliability of large systems consisting of repairable components, by using combinatorial methods (without using Markov models). This paper shows that, with some minor modifications, the rules in the original paper for evaluating steady-state failure-frequency can be used to find the time-specific failure-frequency
