Abstract:

The paper maximizes the mean time between failures subject to a cost constraint for a system consisting of N-1 subsystems in standby, each subsystem containing M identical components with constant failure rates in parallel. The mathematical feasibility of determining the reliability for particular values of N and M is investigated. Finally the paper demonstrates that the values of N and M which maximize the MTBF of the system do not necessarily maximize the reliability of that system for all time. Author
