Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis presents work done to verify the accuracy of a heuristic method for computing availability percentiles for cascaded independent systems. Previous work has provided a model for a single line that will be used as the basis for a simulation of cascaded and parallel systems of lines. The simulation generates cumulative distribution functions that are compared with the cumulative distribution function calculated using the heuristic technique. The results of this comparison show that for independent systems with the same individual availability density functions, the heuristic technique correctly models the composite cumulative distribution function in the areas of most interest to designers.
