Subject: Spares level over set period of time
Sorry this may be a silly question but it's the first time I've done anything like this. I need to calculate the number of spare LRUs required for a product to have 95% confidence level (of having a spare available) when the repair time is 10 months. I have failures/million hours figures and thought the RAC Poisson calculator for sparing was the answer! But now I have to consider a mission time of 18 months and calculate spares for this time only. I cannot see what will change. Can anybody give me any clues? Any ideas will be very much appreciated. Tim
