Multitask operation process

Abstract

An object (device, machine, mean of transport) can work by executing different randomly occurring tasks. A SM model of the object multitask operation process is constructed in this chapter. The SM model construction relies on determining the process kernel. The concepts and theorems of semi-Markov processes theory allow us to compute the object reliability characteristics and parameters such as limit distribution of the state, the mean time to failure, the second moment of the time to failure, and approximate reliability function.
