Abstract:

Properties of the hazard rate function are examined for a warm standby system composed of one main component with an exponentially distributed life length and one standby component with a two-stage exponentially distributed life length. Emphasis is placed on comparing the warm standby hazard function with the hazard rate functions for the parallel and cold standby systems. Graphical analysis suggests certain hazard rate properties, some of which are proved while others are conjectures. Properties with possible applications examined include initial and terminal values, monotonicity, and choice of component for the active role. Areas requiring further investigation are noted. Author
