UNAVAILABILITY AND FAILURE INTENSITY OF COMPONENTS

A comprehensive and standardized set of equations to calculate component unavailability and component failure intensity has been obtained in the case of the repair and inspection policies which are usually not in practice. Some of the processes describing the component behavior can be classified under the heading of so-called "closed chain renewal processes" which are described in the paper. In addition a general theory for the inspected components has been developed.
