    This paper surveys the present status and efforts in formal and informal reliability education in India. Survey of important research activities as indicated by the published research papers in this Transactions for the last five years is also included. A three phase programme for future training in reliability for developing countries like India is suggested. Phase one consists of immediate intro... View full abstract»

    This is a brief description of the reliability activities at Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) Trivandrum. These activities comprise the routine as well as special efforts being made for the reliability improvement of systems developed in the Centre. The paper brings out some new approaches introduced for the Satellite Launch Vehicle (SLV-3) and other space systems. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (720 KB)

    Conventional reliability criteria are severely restricted in usefulness for small or less developed systems which are at an early stage of their evolution. Such systems may suffer from partial or chronic generation shortage for certain periods of their growth. The transmission system may also be unevenly interconnected. Some key bus-bars may be well connected while others may have poor alternative... View full abstract»

    It is necessary to maintain the level of system availability from the point of view of reliable service to consumers. One way of maintaining the required level of system availability is to improve the existing maintenance activity. This paper presents an algorithm to determine the optimal policy for improving existing maintenance activity. View full abstract»

  • Evaluation of Generating System Reliability Indices Under Limited Repair Facility

    A generating system having n units, where each unit is represented by a 2-state device, will have more than 2n possible states when repair facility of the system is limited, i.e. number of repair crews is less than the number of units. When the number of units failed is more than the number of repair crews available, the most recent failures queue for repairs. This paper gives a general equation t... View full abstract»

  • On the Server Working on a Conveyor Belt When No Queue Forms

    Publication Year: 1981, Page(s):26 - 27

    A conveyor system is subjected to failure and repair. The mean number of units that the server processes in a given time is found with the assumption that no queue is allowed. The effect of variation of parameters relating to the conveyor is demonstrated graphically. It is shown that an increase in the repair rate of the conveyor increases the number of units processed by the server only up to a l... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (346 KB)

    A class of standby redundant systems with exponential failure-time and repair-time distributions is considered. There are several alternatives available in each state (up or down) to maintain the system. A computer algorithm is developed to obtain the maintenance policy that maximises s-expected profit of a standby redundant system. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (257 KB)

    This paper derives the interval reliability of an n-unit standby redundant system with warm standbys. The derivation uses renewal theory and regeneration-point techniques. The solution is obtained in the form of Laplace transforms; the transforms can be readily inverted for some special cases. View full abstract»

    The network reliability for a computer-communication network is defined and a method based on spanning trees is proposed for its evaluation. The network reliability expression and s-t terminal reliability expression are compared assuming an equal probability of survival for each communication link. Examples illustrate the method.
