Abstract:

An extension of theory of availability applicable to a broad class of sojourn and coincidence probabilistic models is presented. The extension comprises derivation of formulas for pointwise availability of processes starting from the inoperative state. Asymptotic and current values are computed. A notion of statistical precision level is explored and formulas are derived for applying such levels to a large class of probabilistic models in operations research. The numerical values for levels of 94-percent and 97-percent precision are computed. The properties of these levels are investigated both in generalized manner and in application to computations of availability. Author
