It is shown that the investigation of the relations between the life-curves population and the acceptability regions of a technical system can be used as a basis for the system life expectancy analysis and optimization, which is one of the main components of the system reliability optimization. The optimization of a nuclear reactor fuel element design is chosen as an example to illustrate the ideas discussed. >
