Relex Software Corporation Engineers to Present Four Papers at the 2008 RAMS Conference

Greensburg, PA (PRWEB) November 14, 2007

Relex Software Corporation ( will present four technical papers at the 54th Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS) to be held January 28-31, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. The theme of this year's conference is "Dawn to Dusk - Life Cycle Prescriptions." In addition to the technical presentations, Relex will also demonstrate their wide range of reliability software tools and services in the exhibit hall.

Reliability Analysis of k-out-of-n Load-Sharing Systems, by Suprasad V. Amari, PhD, CRE, and Robert Bergman, introduces an efficient method to compute reliability and mean life of large k-out-of-n load-sharing systems, with identical or non-identical components, following general failure distributions. Consideration is also given to the use of existing stochastic computational procedures for solving load-sharing models, as well as efficient and easily-computed approximations and bounds.

A Practical Method for Failure Analysis Using Incomplete Warranty Data, by Karen Mohan, Brad Cline, CRE, and Jennifer Akers, CRE, examines how to determine failure characteristics of a product when component failure age is not known. Bayesian analysis techniques are applied to effectively capture hidden failure patterns even when the set of warranty data is incomplete.

Availability Analysis of Systems with Suspended Animation, by Duane Huffman, CRE, Robert Bergman, Suprasad V. Amari, PhD, CRE, and Ming J. Zuo, PhD (University of Alberta), provides a simple and efficient method to compute the availability metrics of repairable systems subject to suspended animation. During a system failure or downtime, non-failed components are often kept in a state of suspended animation, thereby introducing dependencies among the component states that impact system availability calculations.

Analysis of Multi-State Systems Using Multi-Valued Decision Diagrams, by Jennifer Akers, CRE, Robert Bergman, Suprasad V. Amari, PhD, CRE, Liudong Zing, PhD (University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth), considers various reliability, availability and performance measures and proposes efficient algorithms for analysis of multi-state systems (MSS) using multi-valued decision diagrams.
