Prediction of system reliability using failure types of components based on Weibull lifetime distribution



Hee Yang Ko Si-Il Sung Yong Soo Kim


Nowadays, products are complicated and standards of reliability are higher than ever before. In contrast, the time available for developing products has gradually decreased. In this context, assessment of the system reliability of products is an active field of study. In this paper, an experimental design was used to investigate the effect of the failure type of components on the whole system’s failure type. For this, a general procedure for estimating system reliability based on the Weibull distribution was adopted.
