Abstract:

It is shown how to use a reliability shorthand to get analytical results for small systems. The underlying probability distribution is the exponential function. An algorithm is described to convolve exponentially distributed random variables, and two computer programs are given to obtain numerical results for convolutions and mixed convolutions. After describing systems in shorthand notation, the programs can be used to compute reliabilities for those systems. The programs are coded in UCSD-Pascal for use with an Apple II and an Apple III.
