  journal={2007 Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium},
The use of commercially available software for analyzing reliability block diagrams (RBD) has become the rule for the vast majority of reliability analysts and engineers. After a model has been developed and checked, a software package is generally used to evaluate the model. For the evaluation of system maintenance, especially in complex redundancy schemes, simulation is required to resolve the availability performance of the model. The results produced by the software packages are usually… CONTINUE READING
