Recently, a method to bound the steady-state availability using the failure distance concept has been proposed. In this paper we refine that method by introducing state space exploration techniques. In the methods proposed here, the state space is incrementally generated based on the contributions to the steady-state availability band of the states in the(More)
Two new algorithms are proposed for the computation of bounds for the steady-state reward mte of irreducible finite Markov models with slow forward and fast backward transitions. The algorithms use detailed knowledge of the model in a subset of generated states G and partial information about the model in the non-generated portion U of the state space. U is(More)
