dc.description.abstractThe simulator uses the Monte Carlo technique to quickly and accurately estimate the reliability and availability of complex network systems, Non-exponential failure and repair distributions are included in the model, as is standby redundancy and K out of N active redundancy. The program is easy to use and will work on a large variety of computers and FORTRAN compilers. Some knowledge of FORTRAN is required to program the simulator for each reliability network, The simulator is limited to the analysis of network systems, i.e, those systems whose logic can be fully represented by a reliability block diagram. The applicability of the model was demonstrated by the analysis of numerous systems in the aerospace and industrial environments. Validation of the model was accomplished by comparing these results with analytically determined values, or those from AMIR and SPAR where an analytic solution was impossible.en_ZA
