Subject: Reliability Modeling
Parallel reliability models described in Mil-Hdbk-338-1A refer to redundant items. What is the equation for a 5:1 model, i.e., 5 non-redundant items with the same failure rate and 1 hot spare for all five? If it is the same as the K out of N configuration model which is in terms of availability, what is the equation in terms of the failure rate?
