MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSIONS FOR RELIABILITY,

MAINTENANCE SUPPORT TERMS
FOREWORD

1) The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards. Their preparation is

entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may

participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC collaborates closely with the International

Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the

two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an

international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation

from all interested National Committees.

3) The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in the form

of standards, technical specifications, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the National

Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.

5) The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.

6) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject

of patent rights. The IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61703 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 56:

Dependability.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
56/747/FDIS 56/771/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Annexes A, B, C and D are for information only.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged

until 2006. At this date, the publication will be
reconfirmed;
withdrawn;
replaced by a revised edition, or
amended.

INTRODUCTION

Part 1 of IEC 60050-191 provides definitions for dependability and its influencing factors,

reliability, availability, maintainability and maintenance support, together with definitions of many

other terms commonly used in this field. Some of these terms relate to specific measures of the

individual performance characteristics, which can be expressed mathematically.

This standard, used in conjunction with IEC 60050-191, provides practical guidance essential

for the quantification of those performance measures. For those requiring further information,

for example on detailed statistical methods, reference should be made to the IEC 60605

series of standards.

Annex A provides a diagrammatic explanation of the relationships between some basic

mathematical terms, related random variables, probabilistic descriptors and measures.

Annex B provides a summary of measures related to time to failure.
Annex C compares some dependability measures for continuously operating items.
Annex D explains some of the software dependability aspects.
The bibliography gives references for the mathematical basis of this standard.

MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSIONS FOR RELIABILITY,
AVAILABILITY, MAINTAINABILITY AND
MAINTENANCE SUPPORT TERMS
1 Scope

This International Standard provides mathematical expressions for reliability, availability,

maintainability and maintenance support measures defined in IEC 60050-191. The following

classes of items are considered separately in this standard:
– non-repaired items;
– repaired items with zero time to restoration;
– repaired items with non-zero time to restoration.

In order to keep the mathematical formulae as simple as possible, the following basic

mathematical models are used to quantify dependability measures:
– random variable (time to failure) for non-repaired items;

– simple (ordinary) renewal process for repaired items with zero time to restoration;

– simple (ordinary) alternating renewal process for repaired items with non-zero time to

restoration.

To facilitate location of the full definition, the IEC 60050-191 reference for each term is shown

(in parenthesis) immediately following each term, for example:
mean time to restoration [191-13-08]

The application of each dependability measure is illustrated by means of a simple example.

NOTE This standard is mainly applicable to hardware dependability, but many terms and their definitions may be

applied to items containing software. Some of the software dependability aspects are explained in annex D.

2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text,

constitute provisions of this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent

amendments to, or revisions of, any of these publications do not apply. However, parties to

agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility

of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents indicated below. For undated

references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of IEC

and ISO maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

3 Definitions

For the purpose of this International Standard, the terms and definitions of IEC 60050-191

and ISO 3534-1 apply. In addition, the following terms and definitions are used.
3.1
instantaneous restoration intensity v(t)

limit, if it exists, of the quotient of the mean number of restorations of a repaired item in the

time interval (t, t + Δt) and the duration of this interval, Δt, when the duration of the time

interval tends to zero
NOTE The instantaneous restoration intensity is expressed by the formula as
[ ]
E N (t + Δt) − N (t)
v(t) = lim
Δt →0+ Δt
where
N (t) is the number of restorations in the time interval (0, t);
E denotes the expectation.
3.2
asymptotic failure intensity z(∞)

for modelling purposes, limit, if it exists, of the instantaneous failure intensity z(t), when time t

tends to infinity
3.3
up-time distribution function F (t)

function giving, for every value of t, the probability that an up time will be less than, or equal

to, t
3.4
complement to the up-time distribution function R (t)

function giving, for every value of t, the probability that an up time will be greater than t

For convenience, this function is referred to as the up-time survival function in this

standard.
NOTE 1 R (t) = 1 − F (t).
U U
NOTE 2 If the up time is exponentially distributed, then
R (t) = exp(−t/MUT)
where MUT is the mean up time.
In this case, the reciprocal of MUT is denoted by λ :
λ = 1/MUT
