Abstract

This paper presents a study of Mean time to system failure and Steady-state availability  systems subject to different types of failure. System I has only one type of failure. When the system fails, it is minimally repaired with probability and it is replaced with probability . System II has two types of failure. If the failure is of type 1, the system is minimally repaired with probability and it is replaced with probability. If the failure is of type II, the system is always rectified by a minimal repair. Failure, repair and replacement rates of each of the two systems are assumed to be exponentially distributed. Explicit expression for Mean time to system failure and Steady-state availability are derived and numerical illustration is presented. Finally, comparisons are madebased on Mean time to system failure and Steady-state Availability and the results show that the optimal system is System I.
