A class of general reliability growth prediction models
Barr, Donald Roy
MetadataShow full item record
In viewing reliability growth prediction models as Markov chains, it is seen that the computation of the reliability after n trials and possible associated repairs, Rn, may be accomplished with any of several different methods. A class of models is considered which accommodates variations in several important factors such as the interdependencies of assignable cause failure modes, inclusion of an inherent failure mode, the repair policy, and the distribution of initial states of the system.
