Birnbaum Importance in Solving Component Assignment Problems

by Xiaoyan Zhu, PhD; Way Kuo, PhD; Qingzhu Yao

As an important type of reliability optimization problems, the component assignment problem (CAP) is to find the optimal arrangement of n available components to n positions of a system such that the resulting system reliability is maximized...

Optimal Spares Analysis for a Networking System Manufacturer

by Huffman, Duane L.; Crytzer, Ryan

In this paper, we show how this process was modeled using a software analysis tool that supports reliability block diagram (RBD) analysis with spares optimization. The easily configured model is capable of performing spares optimizations for multiple.....
