Sensitivity Analysis of Characteristics of a k-out-of-n:F System to Shapes of Life and Repair Times Distributions of Its Components
The problem of sensitivity of a redundant system's probability characteristics to shapes of the input distributions is considered. In some previous works, closed-form representations have been found for stationary characteristics of hot redundant systems with exponential lifetime distribution of their elementsand general distribution of their repair time. In the current paper we carry out the sensitivity analysis of a k-out-of-n :F system with the help of simulation approach. Comparison of analytic and simulation results is presented.
