    A generalization of the reliability model given in Part A of this reliability study is made. The failure and repair rates are assumed to be exponential as in Part A, but the model equations are changed so that the following ramifications are possible. 1) The label case: it is necessary to know which of the similar machines are broken down in order to decide if a system failure has occurred. 2) The...

    In an effort to correlate failure modes observed on field return transistor failures to life test results, Delco Radio initiated a new type power pulse life test program. The program was added to the normally accepted storage and dc operating programs which did not supply adequate information on burn-through or punch-through failures. The test matrix was designed around a unique three-dimensional ... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses the question of man's value in systems and why the topic has arisen. Personnel impact on reliability of man-machine systems is discussed. What is presently being done, what remains to be accomplished, and methods for improving the reliability of people in systems are outlined. Suggestions for making use of man's inherent reliability to improve systems lead to a discussion of ho... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a measure of equipment dependability (reliability) that is related to statistical loss and is suitable for application to complex systems. The relation of this concept, termed effectivity, to other measures is explained and its use is illustrated by application to a specific space system. A prediction of effectivity is described and demonstrated using analytical means and also ... View full abstract»

    The general problem and need for reliability estimation and prediction is discussed. Various types of reliability estimates are considered. A general probabilistic model is defined in a set-theoretic framework. The model considers the operation of a system over several time-periods where the operating mode-of the system may change from period to period. A general expression is given for the reliab...
