Availability and Dependability Analyses of Mechanical Systems 2001-01-3865
The productivity of a system can be measured by a combination of parameters as the reliability, mantenability, availability and dependability, which are influenced by the time of functioning and facilities in the repair of the equipment.
This work is resulted of the development of a software in the Department of Mechanical Design of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the State University of Campinas. This software carries out, basically, Analyses of Failure, Maintenance and Availability.
The Analyses of Availability and Dependability as well as a previous analysis of the Economic Viability have been the subjects treated in this work.
