Abstract:

Because of the increased attention paid to the problem of reliability of machine-building products, to organization of tests and observation of the performance of products in operation, and also to the analysis of the results of observations by using the methods of the theory of reliability, there inevitably appears a series of problems pertaining to the nature of failures, their classification, recording, and analysis. Discussed in this paper are the fundamentals of these problems for example, what is a failure, can any specific event be regarded a failure. How should the failures appearing during the operation of a complex multicomponent machine be classified. Do all failures deserve the same attention, accounting, and recording. Which of the failures should be used as a basis for estimating the faultless performance and the service life of a machine. Author
