3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED
The program REMO calculates the overall reliability of a system using the reliability parameters of its elementary components.
Systems formed by reparable and standby components in any mixture can be treated with REMO. Furthermore, due to the fact that the standby effect is treated in an open subroutine the user can obtain a good approximation to the real case at the cost of some programming work.
The results of a REMO run are:
(a) The probability that the system fails before a fixed time.
(b) The list of the more frequent minimal cut sets.
