    This paper considers a computer system where an operation is restarted when the system stops on some faults. The restart does not succeed every time. Three preventive maintenance (pm) models are considered: A) The pm is made at the scheduled time T. B) The pm is made at the K-th successful restart. C) The pm is made at the next scheduled time if the total number of successes of restart exceeds K. ... View full abstract»

    We discuss optimum inspection policies by introducing the inspection density. We derive the optimum inspection policy by using this inspection density. The models discussed are: 1) the basic model, 2) the basic model with checking time, and 3) the basic model with imperfect inspection. For each model, we obtain the approximate optimum inspection policy minimizing the total s-expected cost by apply... View full abstract»

    Recently, several authors have treated multistate systems and given some results. This paper summarizes the several concepts of s-coherency and shows the relationships between them. An interesting theorem for the existence of series and parallel coherent systems is presented. We have proved IFRA and NBU closure theorems under more general situation than has El-Neweihi, et alii and Ross. We discuss... View full abstract»

    The s-shaped growth curves of detected software errors can be observed in software testing. The delayed s-shaped and inflection s-shaped software reliability growth models based on a nonhomogeneous Poisson process are discussed. The software reliability growth types of the models are investigated in terms of the error detection rate per error. In addition, a viable method for the software quality ... View full abstract»

    Parametric and nonparametric estimation methods are proposed for reliability characteristics of one failure mode under competing risks with incomplete data; some of the failure times are observed without observing the cause of failure. The efficiencies of these methods are discussed. View full abstract»

    This study assesses the reliability of a 2-unit hot-standby redundant system with an imperfect switch. The prior knowledge of experts is used in the assessment through Bayes theorem. Bayes interval limits for the system reliability are presented. The predictive distribution of the first failure time of the system is formulated. View full abstract»

    This paper presents a surrogate constraints algorithm for solving nonlinear programming, nonlinear integer programming, and nonlinear mixed integer programming problems. The algorithm contains a new technique for generating a succession of vector values of surrogate multiplier (ie, surrogate problems). By using this technique, a computer can keep a polyhedron, which is a vector space of surrogate ... View full abstract»
