Abstract:

This report discusses evaluation of expected steady state system availability when there is parallel redundancy and a pool of spares. The pool may support more than one system. Exact results are obtained for both warm standby and cold standby cases, assuming component installation time is 0. Approximations are suggested for treating non-zero installation time. Author
