Abstract:

This paper shows how to compute expected steady state system availability for a system with parallel redundancy, when there is a pool of spare components. There may be several systems supported by this same pool, which is managed by a supplier following an S,S-1 inventory policy. Failures are exponential, but non-exponential resupply and installation times are considered.
