The behavior of the system hazard rate function of a two component parallel system is investigated. The inter-relationships between the probabilities that the components composing the system are alive and the system hazard rate is examined with special attention to certain points where there are important changes in the behavior of the hazard rate function. The behavior of the system hazard rate function is shown to depend upon the rates of change of the probabilities that the components of the system are alive.
