Generalized Reliability Methods for Systems with Standbys.

For repairable systems with standbys, several candidates for measuring reliability are 1 the time to system failure, 2 the number of repairs completed before failure and 3 the total time spent on repair before failure. In the report some general procedures are developed for studying these and other reliability characteristics of systems with standbys. Emphasis is placed on a class of repairable systems known as k-out-of-n systems, 1 or k or n, where n units in parallel redundancy are serviced by a single repairman and system failure occurs when k units are simultaneously inoperable for the first time.
