    This paper presents an integrated approach to the design of an ultrareliable memory system using a variety of coding and modularization techniques on each of the memory subsystem elements. The overall objective is to provide a properly operating memory system in spite of any single indigenous fault (regardless of the number of failures which might ensue). In other words, the system has the capabil... View full abstract»

    Equations are derived which enable one to calculate the system reliability for parallel or triple modular redundant systems with standby spares. Software error detection is introduced into the TMR/Spares system configuration in order to utilize fully all of the units. An indication of the sensitivity of the system reliability to an increase in the number of spares, partitioning, switching, variati... View full abstract»

    This paper attempts to provide a methodology for selecting the product to which to apply Value Engineering (VE). It briefly summarizes existing VE methodology and points up the deficiencies. The technique is a sensitivity analysis of diagrams of networks which indicate the cost interdependencies of the product. By determining the areas with the highest cost reduction potential, VE efforts can be c... View full abstract»

  • A Competing Risk Model: A One Organ Subsystem Plus a Two Organ Subsystem

    A competing risk model is developed for an individual who is subject to two risks of death or failure. One risk is the failure of a single organ which has a constant hazard rate. The other risk is the failure of a two organ system in which one of the two organs must survive in order that the system not fail. Each organ in this two organ system has a constant hazard rate, and the hazard rate increa... View full abstract»

  • Best Linear Unbiased Estimator of the Parameter of the Rayleigh Distribution - Part I: Small Sample Theory for Censored Order Statistics

    The best linear unbiased estimator of the parameter of the Rayleigh distribution using order statistics in a Type II censored sample from a potential sample of size N is considered. The coefficients for this estimator are tabled to five decimal places for N = 2(1)15 and censoring values of r1, (the number of observations censored from the left) and r2 (the number of observations censored from the ...

    This paper presents a new method for the optimization of system reliability with linear constraints, using the parametric approach [1]. The classical nonlinear programming technique is used for the solution. This method, which is analytically complete, sufficiently accurate and computationally simple, gives optimum or near optimum design. The procedure is illustrated with examples, and flow charts...

    This paper shows how Product Liability common law has developed over the decades. The kinds of defects with which one must deal are classified into manufacturing, design, marketing, and puffing. They are analyzed with respect to their product liability implications. No-fault enterprise liability is described and analyzed. View full abstract»

  • Product LiabilityߞIs No-Fault the Answer?

    Fault product-liability is the cornerstone of a responsible industry. It provides the moral and economic justification for safe products. No-fault product liability rewards the just and unjust alike, and provides no direct incentive for a manufacturer to make the safest product he can. View full abstract»

  • Liability Prevention via the CourtߞIs it Possible?

    Though common law declares the safety of the people as the supreme law and guarantees to every individual the right of personal safety, courts cannot protect individuals from product-caused injuries because of inherent shortcomings of the judicial process. Scientific and technological changes take place on a predetermined time scale but ethics and human values do not develop in the same manner. Th... View full abstract»

    The following 4 propositions are discussed. 1) Since every action by a producer relevant to whether the use of his product is attended by injuries has some cost and benefit consequences, a producer has numerous safety-related options available to him. 2) The degree of safety in the use of a product is an element of product quality. 3) If one focuses on the causes for some inevitable product safety...
