About this Book

Learn how to model, predict, and manage system reliability/availability throughout the development life cycle

Written by a panel of authors with a wealth of industry experience, the methods and concepts presented here give readers a solid understanding of modeling and managing system and software availability and reliability through the development of real applications and products. The modeling and prediction techniques and tools are customer-focused and data-driven, and are also aligned with industry standards (Telcordia, TL 9000, ISO, etc.). Readers will get a clear understanding about what real-world reliability and availability mean through step-by-step discussions of:

  • System availability
  • Conceptual model of reliability and availability
  • Why availability varies between customers
  • Modeling availability
  • Estimating parameters and availability from field data
  • Estimating input parameters from laboratory data
  • Estimating input parameters in the architecture/design stage
  • Prediction accuracy
  • Connecting the dots

This book can be used by system architects, engineers, and developers to better understand and manage the reliability/availability of their products; quality engineers to grasp how software and hardware quality relate to system availability; and engineering students as part of a short course on system availability and software reliability.
