A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20031 Dependability & Maintainability Theory and Methods 3. Reliability Block Diagrams Andrea Bobbio Dipartimento di Informatica Università del Piemonte Orientale, “A. Avogadro” 15100 Alessandria (Italy) bobbio@unipmn.itbobbio@unipmn.it - http://www.mfn.unipmn.it/~bobbio/IFOA IFOA, Reggio Emilia, June 17-18, 2003

A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20032 Model Types in Dependability Combinatorial models assume that components are statistically independent: poor modeling power coupled with high analytical tractability. Reliability Block Diagrams, FT, …. State-space models rely on the specification of the whole set of possible states of the system and of the possible transitions among them. CTMC, Petri nets, ….

3
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20033 Reliability Block Diagrams Each component of the system is represented as a block; System behavior is represented by connecting the blocks; Failures of individual components are assumed to be independent; Combinatorial (non-state space) model type.

4
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20034 Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs) Schematic representation or model; Shows reliability structure (logic) of a system; Can be used to determine dependability measures; A block can be viewed as a “switch” that is “closed” when the block is operating and “open” when the block is failed; System is operational if a path of “closed switches” is found from the input to the output of the diagram.

5
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20035 Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs) Can be used to calculate: –Non-repairable system reliability given: Individual block reliabilities (or failure rates); Assuming mutually independent failures events. –Repairable system availability given: Individual block availabilities (or MTTFs and MTTRs); Assuming mutually independent failure and restoration events; Availability of each block is modeled as 2-state Markov chain.

A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20036 Series system of n components. Components are statistically independent Define event E i = “component i functions properly.” Series system in RBD A1A1A2A2AnAn P(E i ) is the probability “component i functions properly” the reliability R i (t) (non repairable) the availability A i (t) (repairable)

A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20037 Reliability of Series system Series system of n components. Components are statistically independent Define event E i = "component i functions properly.” A1A1A2A2AnAn Denoting by R i (t) the reliability of component i Product law of reliabilities:

8
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 20038 Series system with time-independent failure rate Let i be the time-independent failure rate of component i. Then: The system reliability Rs(t) becomes: R s (t) = e - s t with s = i i=1 n R i (t) = e - i t 1 1 MTTF = —— = ———— s i i=1 n

A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 200312 Improving the Reliability of a Series System Sensitivity analysis: R s R s S i = ———— = ———— R i R i The optimal gain in system reliability is obtained by improving the least reliable component.

13
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 200313 The part-count method It is usually applied for computing the reliability of electronic equipment composed of boards with a large number of components. Components are connected in series and with time- independent failure rate.

15
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 200315 Redundant systems When the dependability of a system does not reach the desired (or required) level: Improve the individual components; Act at the structure level of the system, resorting to redundant configurations.

16
A. BobbioReggio Emilia, June 17-18, 200316 Parallel redundancy A system consisting of n independent components in parallel. It will fail to function only if all n components have failed. E i = “The component i is functioning” E p = “the parallel system of n component is functioning properly.” A1A1 AnAn............
