Abstract:

Some inequalities are obtained which yield bounds for the mean life of series and of parallel systems based on the type of component life distributions, such as a increasing decreasing failure rate b increasing decreasing failure rate average c decreasing density d Weibull e Gamma. Similar inequalities are obtained for the convolution of life distributions, helpful in the study of replacement policies. Author
