Simple Markov models for the failure mechanisms of periodically tested standby components were studied in Hokstad & Frrvig (1996). In this paper we reconsider and generalize their models, presenting a systematic and exible modeling approach. In addition we indicate how computer packages for symbolic mathematical computations, like Maple and Mathematica, are well suited for solving the models, yielding, for example, general expressions for interesting reliability measures. 1 INTRODUCTION… CONTINUE READING
