Component sparing can have significant impacts on the availability of a system but because it is not typically considered as part of the total system model, it is often overlooked and neglected. 5 MARKOV CHAIN MODELS Consider a system consisting of a number of discrete states and transitions between those states. A Markov chain is a stochastic process (stochastic processes have behavior that is intrinsically nondeterministic) possessing the Markov property. The Markov property is simply the absence of “memory” within the process.

The TTF of an item, subsystem or system is represented by a statistically distributed random variable. The MTTF is the mean value of this variable. 1). 12) SYSTEM METRICS 17 This definition is the familiar first moment or expected value of a random variable. The commonly used MTBF can be approximated by the MTTF when the repair or restoral time (MDT) is small with respect to the MTTF. 13) 0 This expression is particularly useful for calculating the MTTF (or MTBF) in many circumstances. Telecommunications engineers must be particularly careful when using vendorprovided MTBF values.

21) The normal distribution should be familiar to readers. The mean value (m) represents the average value of the distribution while the standard deviation (s) is a measure of the variability of the random variable. The lognormal distribution is simply the distribution of a random variable whose logarithm is normally distributed. 6 shows the PDF of a normal random variable with m ¼ 8 h and s ¼ 2 h. These values of mean and standard deviation represent the time to repair for an arbitrary telecommunications system.
