We consider repairable reliability systems with m components, the lifetimes and repair times of which are independent. The l-th component can be either in the failure state 0 or in the perfect state d l or in one of the degradation states {1, 2,. .. , d l − 1}. The time of staying in any of these states is a random variable following a discrete distribution(More)
The compound Poisson "local" formulation of the Stein-Chen method is applied to problems in reliability theory. Bounds for the accuracy of the approximation of the reliability by an appropriate compound Poisson distribution are derived under fairly general conditions, and are applied to consecutive-2 and connected-s systems, and the 2-dimensional(More)
