Effects of Maintenance and Support Factors on Availability of Systems 670673
The problem of writing valid availability models for complex systems is discussed, together with the problem of maximizing availability as a function of maintenance and support factors. A new graph-theoretic modeling and simulation technique is described, useful for predicting the distribution of system downtime and for enabling trade-offs among design and support variables.
