Availability quantifies the propensity of a system to be functionally operative upon demand. It increases if operating times between failures (up times) are long, and decreases if, following failure or anticipatory removal, logistics delays and repair (down times) are protracted. This chapter summarizes the general availability concept and discusses the limitation of operational availability suggesting that mission availability is often more useful and appropriate.
