Abstract:

The paper in general discusses the us of availability as a design requirement and the implications of the statistical characteristics of the availability distribution in a requirements setting. Specifically the paper presents a method of manipulating an availability requirement to obtain accurate reliability and maintainability characteristics. Using the technique to determine reliability and maintainability requirements for a system, the resultant configuration should provide the required inherent availability. The technique uses a Monte Carlo simulation to develop an interval availability distribution from which the reliability and maintainability requirements are derived. Author
