ABSTRACT
The average failure rate of an n - 1/n parallel redundant system of n identical elements, each of which has a constant failure rate of ?, that is repaired every T hours can be approximated by the upper bound n(n - 1)?<sup>2</sup>T/2. If ?T < 1, the ratio of the upper bound to the actual average failure rate is less than or equal to I + (n -)?T/I - ?T/2. These formulas provide a convenient method f
