Subject: MTBF for complex electromechanical system
I just want some advice on which distribution should i use to model complex electromechanical system for example army vehicle? Some advice me to use exponential distribution. Can advice? Secondly MTBF only applies to exponential distribution but in actual fact, the vehicle will wear out sooner or later. So for my spares provisioning model should i use MTBF or MTTF values to be more realistic?
