Abstract:

This is a mathematical analysis of the reliability concept and two kinds of reliability functions The exponential and the Weibull distribution. Both functions are analyzed with respect to the following four determinants of reliability 1 System complexity, 2 Subsystem criticality, 3 Subsystem redundancy, and 4 Fatigue. Appropriate formulas describing these agencies are developed, and their implications are discussed. Author
