3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

In reliability theory, the term "availability" generally indicates the probability of the proper functioning of a system or of a component at a general time t when various possible replacement or repair policies are considered. AVACOM-ETARP calculates the transient and asymptotic availability of a component subject to a repair process with generic failure and repair laws. Five of the most commonly used distributions have been  included as options: exponential, normal; lognormal; gamma; Weibull.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The used mathematical model considers the failure-restoration process as a 2-state non-homogeneous Markov process containing the homogeneous Markov one as a particular case.
