Bayesian estimate of system availability for consecutive k-out-of-n:F system

Madhumitha J., G. Vijayalakshmi


In the efficient design and functionality of complex systems, redundancy problems in systems play a key role. The consecutive-k-out-of-n:F structure, which has broad application in street light arrangements, vacuum systems in an accelerator, sliding window detection, relay stations for a communication system. Availability is one of the significant measures for a maintained device because availability accounts for the repair capability. A very significant feature is the steady-state availability of a repairable device. For the repairable consecutive k-out-of-n:F system with independent and identically distributed components, the Bayesian point estimate (B.P.E) of steady-state availability under squared error loss function (SELF) and confidence interval are obtained.
