Reliability Analysis of a Two-Unit Series System
Su Baohe ( Shi jiazhuang Railway Institute )
In this paper, the author studies a repairable two-unit series system with a repairman and a repair expert. Each unit in the system is suppose to have two failure states which are in different needs of the repairman and the repair expert. By using the method of vector Markov process, the author obtains the following reliability indices: (1) the reliability and the availability of the system; (2) the mean failure number and the mean renewal number of the system during(0,t].
