A Simplified Method to Calculate Failure Times in Fault-Tolerant Systems
August 1983 (vol. 32 no. 8)
pp. 754-756
S.C. Seth, Department of Computer Science, University of Nebraska
A simplified method is presented to calculate moments of failure time and residual lifetime of a fault-tolerant system. The method is based on recent results in queueing theory. Its effectiveness is illustrated by considering a dual repairable system from the literature.
Index Terms:
renewal theory, Failure-time distribution, fault-tolerant systems, mean time to failure (MTTF), mean residual life (MRL)
