Prior to starting and also during the use of various systems, it is highly important to know how the system and its parts will behave during operation regarding breakdowns. It is possible to predict the service behavior of a system by determining the functions of reliability, as well as the frequency and intensity of failures. This paper considers the theoretical basics of the functions of reliability, frequency, and intensity of failures for the 2 main approaches. One includes 6 equal intervals and the other 13 unequal intervals for the concrete case taken from practice. The reliability of the "alternator-alternator belt" system installed on buses is analyzed according to the empirical data on failures. Results are discussed. In order to estimate the reliability of these systems with increased accuracy, a greater number of failures need to be analyzed.
