  • About the Edition

    A system whose configuration (block diagram or fault tree) changes during consecutive time periods (phases) performs a "phased mission." Recently, Esary and Ziehms have shown that any multi-phase mission can be transformed into an equivalent, synthetic, single-phase system, and thus that the phased mission problem can in principle be solved by standard reliability methods. The author employs these ideas here to study approximations to mission reliability and to develop an algorithm which may be of practical interest. In addition, he extends the reliability calculus of Rubinstein, and Esary and Hayne, based on an approximate hazard transform, to phased missions. It is shown how this extended calculus can be used in situations where phases are not of known fixed duration.

Mission success depends on the successful completion of all mission phases. Increasingly, for example in military theatre, platforms operating phased missions are.

Abstract: A method for automated analysis of phased mission reliability which considers the problem in terms of the construction of a continuous-time discrete-state Markov model and uses a standard Markov-chain solution technique that is adapted to the problem of phased missions is presented.

The resulting state space is the union of the states in each independent phase, rather than the sum. For reliability modeling, the mapping of time spent at different temperatures is known as a mission profile.

Table 1 provides an example of applying de-rated FIT data to an application mission profile. In this paper, the reliability of phased -mission system s (PMS s) subject ed to random shock s is considered.

In a PMS, the system needs to perform different tasks in successive time period s, known as phases [1]. A classic example is the manned. At the RAMS Conference, a paper entitled Reliability analysis of phased-mission systems: a practical approach was presented.

This paper established an alleged novel and simple approach to reliability analysis of phased-mission systems. The technique presented in that paper transformed a phased-mission system into several nonphased systems, thus allowing for each phase to be. Phased-mission systems (PMSs) have wide applications in engineering practices, such as manmade satellites.

Certain critical parts in the system, such as cold standby, hot standby and functional standby, are designed in redundancy architecture to achieve high reliability performance.

State-space models such as Markov process have been used extensively in previous studies for reliability. In this paper, we presented a simulation based model to analysis the reliability of phased-mission system (PMS) with repairable components.

Many researches on the repairable PMS supposed that failed components would be repairable only when the system is in a good state. It is different here that failed components can be repaired no matter what state Approximations to the reliability of phased missions book the system in.

in use during the considered phase. The radar (ground station) components can be repaired while the satellite components cannot.

Failure and repair rates are shown in Table I. Our objective is to assess the reliability of this phased-mission system for a hours mission. III. ALTARICA A. Guarded Transition Systems.

A reliability analysis for a phased mission encounters complexities not present with just one phase, but can be transformed into an analysis of a synthetic single phase case. The approximation techniques for unavailability estimates for phased missions contained in this paper are useful for industrial applications.

The techniques are implementable and existing computer programs such as MOCUS, PREP, and KITT can be used for the analysis although such use.

Michael G. Stamatelatos, and Harold S. Blackman. ASME Press,   The reliability analysis of systems that are used in missions consisting of single or multiple phases of random or deterministic durations is an important extension of same problem for which various tools have been developed.

An approach proposed by Smotherman and Zemoudeh [1] describe how to carry out a phased mission analysis. Phased Mission System (PMS) are systems supporting missions consisting of multiple, consecutive and non-overlapping operational phases.

My library. From these results, we can see that for a mission success goal of R ms =, the phase reliability for the propulsion system should be between and The corresponding phase unreliability ranges between anda ratio of about 2.

Multi-State Phased-Mission Systems (MS-PMSs) are Multi-State Systems (MSSs) that accomplish different missions in a series of consecutive and non-overlapping time durations, called phases. Many practical PMSs are non-repairable, such as the spacecraft working in the outer space.

Reliability is further divided into mission reliability and logistics reliability. For further information see Sections and Availability Availability is a measure of the degree to which an item is in an operable state and can be committed at the start of a mission when the mission is called for at an unknown (random) point in.

The simple technique of phase-type distributions is useful in some cases. Thus, we follow this line of work that Weibull IFR approximated by a M-stage Erlang distribution and Weibull DFR by a.

phased-mission system (PMS) undergoes different scenarios for which failure criteria vary throughout the entire mission time. For each phase, the system has different reliability requirements as indicated by its topology.

The topology often varies from phase to phase and a system is usually decomposed into multiple non-overlapping phases. Phased Mission Reliability Analysis * Arun K. Somani, James A. Ritcey, Stephen H.L. Au Fault Tolerant Computing Laboratory Department of Electrical Engineering, FT University of Washington Seattle, Extended Abstract Introduction The reliability analysis of ultra-reliable computer systems is an important problem for which various tools have been developed.

But the existing tools can. For the mission to be a success, the system must operate successfully during each of the phases. In each phase, the system has to accomplish a specific task and may be subject to different stresses. Thus, the system configuration, success criteria, and component failure behavior may change from phase to phase.

Your organization’s mission needs to be linked to your performance measures, strategies and plans of action, which brings us to a discussion of scorecards and key performance indicators (KPI’s). My thinking in this area has been influenced by “The Balanced Scorecard” articles and books published by Robert S.

Kaplan and David P. Norton. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): This paper presents a novel and simple approach to reliability analysis of phased-mission systems.

The technique presented in this paper transforms a phased-mission system into several non-phased-mission systems, and thus allows each phase to be modeled separately. The mission succeeds as long as every phase. Reliability refers to the consistency of the measurement.

Reliability shows how trustworthy is the score of the test. If the collected data shows the same results after being tested using various methods and sample groups, this indicates that the information is reliable. Zio, E., and Librizzi, M.

Return to MathPages Main Menu.Reliability engineering is a sub-discipline of systems engineering that emphasizes the ability of equipment to function without failure.

Reliability describes the ability of a system or component to function under stated conditions for a specified period of time. Reliability is closely related to availability, which is typically described as the ability of a component or system to function at.Managing service reliability is largely about managing risk, and managing risk can be costly.

% is probably never the right reliability target: not only is it impossible to achieve, it’s typically more reliability than a service’s users want or notice.
