Availability assessment methods and their application in practice
In this paper we compare availability assessment methods for continuous production systems in a design phase. Apart from discussing simulation and analytical techniques, we also consider computer tools and data sources. The comparison is based on a literature search, analytical considerations and on practical experience with the methods and the tools. Most progress in the last ten years seems to have been made on simulation programs and on databases, such as OREDA. This is somewhat disappointing, compared with the progress made in a related area.
