It is by now clear that reliable design models for large and complex industrial and systems must be based on Monte Carlo (MC) calculations. Such models involve aging of LRUs (Line replaceable units) and interactions between various LRUs and subsystems that can not be presented and solved by analytic methods. A logistic model involves both the systems and(More)
