Repairable Systems Simulation

Estimate Outage Time for a Complex System

The Repairable Systems Simulation platform is available only in JMP Pro.

The Repairable Systems Simulation (RSS) platform enables you to explore the reliability within complex repairable systems. A repairable system consists of individual components that age and require maintenance. The state of a repairable system changes as its components fail and are subsequently repaired.

Repairable systems are involved in many aspects of modern life. They can range in size from refrigerators and houses to power plants and telephone communication networks.

The RSS platform enables you to simulate different system configurations in order to optimize your repairable system. For example, you can extend the useful life of costly components or maximize production outputs while maintaining a safe system operation.
