Subject: reliability measures
How do you convert the equation for operational availability to inherent availability and vice versa?
Is there some standard method?

Translations of predicted and operational parameters can be performed using the equations in the RADC-TR-89-299, Reliability and Maintainability Operational Parameter Translation" technical report. This report has both reliability and maintainability factors, which when combined using standard equations can estimate the availability parameters. The report is available from the Defense Technical Information Center, Ft. Belvoir VA.
