Reliability theory, Advanced Statistics

Reliability theory is the theory which attempts to determine the reliability of the complex system from knowledge of the reliabilities of the components. Interest might centre on either the lifetime or failure-free operating time of the system or piece of the equipment or on broader aspects of system's performance over time. In the previous situation survival analysis techniques are generally of most significance; in the latter case the Markov processes are often used to model the system performance.
