Help us write another book on this subject and reach those readers. After the next failure, it is again repaired and put into operation, etc. Another way of calculation: COA = MTBF/(MTBF + MTTR) = 20.8/(20.8 + 2.2) = 0.90435 and COU = MTTR/(MTBF + MTTR) = 2.2/(20.8 + 2.2) = 0.09565. ADVERTISEMENTS: This article throws light upon the four important characteristics of a good test. What is the total necessary number of buses Ntot? The first generation computers were used vaccum tubes as the main electronic part. Also, a living being cannot be repaired, if it has died. • Survey participants' overall satisfaction ("extremely satisfied" or "very satisfied") with laptop reliability from all companies has improved from 67.6 percent in 2008 to 81.9 percent in 2011. Brief introduction to this section that descibes Open Access especially from an IntechOpen perspective, Want to get in touch? In theory, a reliable product is totally free of technical errors. How? Reliability. As PhD students, we found it difficult to access the research we needed, so we decided to create a new Open Access publisher that levels the playing field for scientists across the world. 1 month or year), ∑tdown is the sum of down times in this interval, and ttot is the total investigated time. If a repairable item fails, it is repaired and again put into operation. 1b) and is called reliability function (therefore the symbol R). However, due to failures and maintenance, several buses are unavailable every day. The fraction of failed objects, F(t), increases with time, and the fraction of objects that have not failed, R(t), decreases. It also expresses the average probability that the object will be able to fulfill the expected task at any instant. It is t-1, for example, h-1 or % per hour for machines, components, or appliances, km-1 for vehicles, etc. [Remark: Formula (13) is only approximate and often exhibits big scatter. In such cases, modified formulas for MTTF must be used; see Chapter 20 or . Reliability If a packet gets lost or acknowledgement is not received (at sender), the re-transmission of data will be needed. 1a). A limited amount of data can be stored, temporarily, in the primary memory. A more universal quantity is the relative proportion of the failed items, that is, the number of the failed items related to the number n of monitored objects, nf(t)/n. Computers have the ability to communicate, but of course there needs some sort of connection (either Wired or Wireless connection). Reliability : The output generated by the computer is very reliable as long as the data is reliable. The Basic Characteristics of Computer are as following :: Speed; Accuracy; Memory; Diligence; Versatility; Reliability; Low Cost & Reduced Size; Automatic; No Feeling & No IQ; Speed :: When we say that a particular computer system "exhibits RAS characteristics,"we mean that its design places a high priority on the system remaining in service An aid for easier remembering: the letter F is also the first letter of the word failure. The number of working objects remains constant, so that R(t) = 1. It has been found that cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access the computing re… The right-hand side of Equation (4) indicates how the probability density can be determined from empirical data, nf(t + ∆t) expresses the number of failed parts from 0 to t + ∆t, and nf(t) is the number of failures that occurred until the time t. In fact, probability density f(t) shows the distribution of failures in time, similar to Fig. The four characteristics are: 1. Failure rate (1) thus corresponds to the failure probability density, λ(t) = f(t). Friends & family can connect over the internet and share files, photos & videos online. Some objects could be repaired after failure but are not, because of economic reasons. One moment it can do any one operation and next moment if can perform any other operation. Versatility: versatility is one of the most wonderful things about the computer. Coefficient of unavailability: COU = ∑tdown,j/ttot = 11/(104 + 11) = 0.09565. MTBF is the mean time (of operation) between failures and MTTR is the mean time to repair (generally, the mean down time caused by failures). Computerized accounting systems include the use of computers and a software application or program to aid companies in recording, reporting and analyzing financial information. Reliability can affect only error prone by human mind. Submitted: January 8th 2016Reviewed: February 3rd 2016Published: April 13th 2016, Home > Books > Concise Reliability for Engineers. it performs tasks without manual intervention. For example you can listen to songs, download movies, and prepare word documents all at the same time. a machine) does not work. In computing, computer performance is the amount of useful work accomplished by a computer system. It can perform long and complex calculations with the same speed and accuracy from the start till the end. The goal of this study was to assess the reliability of measurements of the physical characteristics of spiculated masses on mammography. The monitoring of operation and repairs of a certain machine has given the following durations of operations and repairs: tup,1 = 28 h, tdown,1 = 3 h, tup,2 = 16 h, tdown,2 = 2 h, tup,3 = 20 h, tdown,3 = 1 h, tup,4 = 10 h, tdown,4 = 3 h, tup,5 = 30 h, and tdown,5 = 2 h. Determine the mean time between failures and mean time to repair. Reliability: Linux is notoriously reliable and secure. Examples for better understanding are included. Reliability characteristics for a technical installation are very important for the design of the installation. • Reliability is an important characteristic of flow. By making research easy to access, and puts the academic needs of the researchers before the business interests of publishers. Software Characteristics are classified into six major components: These components are described below: Functionality: It refers to the degree of performance of the software against its intended purpose. The power and usefulness of this popular machine is mainly due to the following features:-a) Speed b) Accuracy c) Diligence d) Versatile e) Storage f) Automatic g) Reliability a) Speed: - Computer can work at a very high speed. To date our community has made over 100 million downloads. The mean time between failures and mean time to repair can be used to characterize the probability that the object will be serviceable at a certain instant or not. The characteristics of computer that are speed, accuracy, diligence, versatility,Power of Remembering,No IQ,No Feeling and storage capacity. Mean time to repair and between repairs, coefficient of availability and unavailability, failure rate. When used for a longer period of time, the computer does not get tired or fatigued. Software is defined as collection of computer programs, procedures, rules and data. Licensee IntechOpen. It has long been considered one of three related attributes that must be considered when making, buying, or using a computer product or component. But for a particular computer, each and every calculation is performed. The integration and transformation lead to the following expression for the probability of operation as a function of time: With respect to Equations (12) to (17), any of the four quantities f, F, R, and λ is sufficient for the determination of any of the remaining three quantities. For memory devices punch card and paper tapes were used. The failed item is discarded. Equation (1) relates mutually three variables: λ, f, and R. Fortunately, it can be transformed into simple relationships of two quantities. Thus, the term nonrepaired objects can be used as more universal. Good information is relevant for its purpose, sufficiently accurate for its purpose, complete enough for the problem, reliable and targeted to the right person. The basic reliability characteristics are explained: time to failure, probability of failure and of failure-free operation, repairable and unrepairable objects. Unlike probability, which is nondimensional, failure rate has a dimension. Reliability: The dictionary meaning of reliability is consistency, dependence or trust. Validity 3. Two computers can be connected to send & receive data. If we want to know when the failures can occur, their time characteristics are also important. Characteristic # 1. Express the average probability (in %) that the machine (a) will be able to work at any instant (R) and (b) will not be able to work (F). 1. Basic characteristics about computer are: … These systems follow the same basic principles by which manual systems operate. After a failure, the object is repaired and continues working. When it comes to high computer performance, one or more of the following factors might be involved: • However, the sensitivity of application programs to reliability is not the same. If we denote each interval as “uptime” tup or “downtime” tdown, we can calculate the mean time between failures, MTBF, and the mean time to repair, MTTR: If data for a high number of values tup and tdown are available, the distribution of these times can also be obtained and used. Even the simple records from operation can give the basic values of probabilities and reliability. Outside of specific contexts, computer performance is estimated in terms of accuracy, efficiency and speed of executing computer program instructions. (a) Failure function F(t) and (b) reliability function R(t). Available from: Department of Mechanics, Materials and Machine Parts, Jan Perner Transport Faculty, University of Pardubice, Czech Republic. The increasing popularity of computer has proved that it is very powerful and useful machine. So in measurement reliability is the consistency with which a test yields the same result […] Information : Proper collection of the data is called information.Characteristics of Computer 1. Cloud Computingis gaining more and more popularity day by day. Important flow characteristics of the QoS are given below: 1. Usability. © 2016 The Author(s). Reliability is usually characterized by the probability of failure or by the time to failure. Multitasking is also a computer characteristic. If components with very long life are tested, the tests are usually terminated after some predefined time or after failure of certain fraction of all components. Characteristics of Information. Complete List and Explanation on Computer Characteristics. The Windows 10 reliability monitor display is made up of three distinct areas--each area provides specific information on a timeline describing events … Computer is an electronic device which is used to store the data, as per given instructions it gives results quickly and accurately. First, it can be rewritten as follows: The separation of the variables leads to the differential equation of first order. 3a in Chapter 2. QoS is an overall performance measure of the computer network. ACCURACY : Since Computer is programmed, so what ever input we give it gives result with accuratly. Jaroslav Menčík (April 13th 2016). Basically, failure rate expresses the probability of failure during a time unit. Flow of operations (uptimes, tup) and repairs (downtimes, td). Two experienced radiologists measured the properties of 21 images of spiculated masses. The three basic metrics of RAM are (not surprisingly) Reliability, Maintainability, and Availability. The probability that the machine will be able to work at any instant equals the coefficient of availability; R = COA = 0.90435 ≈ 90,4%. For example, calculation and generation of salary slips of thousands of employees of an organization, weather forecasting that requires analysis of a large amount of data related to temperature, pressure and humidity of various places, etc. Accuracy Computer provides a high degree of accuracy. Therefore, companies are in competition to provide large space to store data along with the various features and quality service. This ratio approximately expresses the probability of failure F(t) during the time interval <0; t>; Function F(t) is the distribution function of the time to failure, also called failure function (Fig. At one moment you can use the computer to prepare a letter document and in the next moment you may play music or print a document. 4. The computer program presented in this paper applies to this type of graph and evaluates upper and lower bounds to three system-reliability characteristics: availability, mean time-to-fail, and mean time-to-repair. The qualitative and quantitative description of computer based task performance is utilized as an example. Open Access is an initiative that aims to make scientific research freely available to all. However, in most cases, the exponential distribution is used, and a single value, the mean time to failure (MTTF) for non-restorable systems, or mean time between failures (MTBF for restorable systems are used). 1. 1. R is complementary to F. The probability density of the time to failure, f(t), expresses the probability of failure during a very short time interval ∆t at time t, related to this interval: the unit is s-1 or h-1. Built by scientists, for scientists. It must reminded here that the time of a repair is not always the same as the downtime when the object (e.g. With the above numbers, Ntot = 30/0.85 = 35.29. If a group of identical objects is put into operation, the individual pieces begin to fail after some time, and it is also possible to express the number of failed pieces as a function of time, nf(t). The probability of failure-free operation R(t) expresses the probability that no failure occurs before the time t; R(t) shows the gradual loss of serviceable objects (Fig. As it follows from long-term records, the mean availability of the buses is COA = 0.85. It can perform different types of tasks with the same ease. Characteristics of computer: Accuracy Accuracy of a computer is consistently high and the degree of accuracy of a particular computer depends on the instructions and the type of processor. The reason behind this is the gradual growth of the companies which are in need of the place to store their data. Users usually experience less issues in Linux. We share our knowledge and peer-reveiwed research papers with libraries, scientific and engineering societies, and also work with corporate R&D departments and government entities. Determine the coefficient of availability (COA) and unavailability (COU). The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers ( IEEE ) sponsors an organization devoted to reliability in engineering known as the IEEE Reliability Society (IEEE RS). Contact our London head office or media team here. If failure is considered as a single event (e.g. The coefficient of availability can also be calculated as. Experience and research shows that good information has numerous qualities. Login to your personal dashboard for more detailed statistics on your publications. Computers can perform several tasks at a time. Main characteristics of a computer are Speed, Accuracy , Diligence, Storage Capability, Versatility , They can communicate, We can do multitasking says how many percent of the total time are downtimes. First and foremost, a software product must meet all the requirements of the customer or end-user. The computer has become a huge contributor in business. Reliability is a very big characteristics of computer. Well before going into technical characteristics, I would like to state the obvious expectations one has from any software. The basic quantity for unrepaired objects is the time to failure tf. The term reliability refers to the ability of a computer-related hardware or software component to consistently perform according to its specifications. The basic reliability characteristics are explained: time to failure, probability of failure and of failure-free operation, repairable and unrepairable objects. Computer is versatile in nature. In a town, N = 30 buses are necessary for assuring reliable traffic on 15 routes. A) Computer Characteristics & … This is typical of simple unrepairable objects, such as lamp bulbs, screws, windows, integrated circuits, and many inexpensive parts. Electronic time per calculation ranged from 0.1 milliseconds to1 milliseconds. The main characteristics of a computer are : The computer can process data very fast, at the rate of millions of instructions per second. SPEED : In general, no human being can compete to solving the complex computation, faster than computer. For example, COA = 0.9 means that, on average, the vehicle (or machine) is only 90% of all time in operation, and 10% of the total time it is idle due to failures. We are a community of more than 103,000 authors and editors from 3,291 institutions spanning 160 countries, including Nobel Prize winners and some of the world’s most-cited researchers. A computer is free from monetary and tiredness. Reliability is a synonym for assurance, which is the term used by the ITU and ATM Forum. Reliability is an attribute of any computer-related component (software, or hardware, or a network, for example) that consistently performs according to its specifications. It’s based on principles of collaboration, unobstructed discovery, and, most importantly, scientific progression. Magnetic drums are also used for storage .At that time memory was very expensive. Today almost all the big industries or big e-Commerce companies like Amazon and Flipkart, and big search engine companies like - Google and Bing, all these companies are dependent on computers. In this case, the term hazard rate is used as more appropriate, but the expression failure rate is also very common. The coefficient of availability simply says what part of the total time is available for useful work. Reliability can be characterized in terms of the parameters, mean, or any percentile of a reliability distribution. Useful information on reliability is obtained from a very simple characteristic, the average or mean time to failure or MTTF, which is generally defined as. We have defined new structural test coverage criteria for FBD programs in which dataflow-centric characteristics of FBD programs were well reflected. 1. In addition to the net time of the repair, some logistic times are often necessary, which sometimes last much longer than the repair. The number of reserve vehicles is 36 – 30 = 6 buses. f(t) is the probability density of failure (=dF/dt), and R(t) is the probability that the object was operated until the time t. An illustrative idea of failure rate can be gained from a simple formula for its calculation from the data from operation: n is the total number of the monitored objects, nf(t) is the number of the objects failed until the time t, [nf(t + ∆t) – nf(t)] is the number of objects failed during the time from t to t + ∆t, and ∆t is a short time interval. The mean time to failure can be calculated from operational records as the average of the group of measured times to failure. • Lack of reliability means losing a packet or acknowledgement which then requires retransmission. Automation Computer performs all the tasks automatically i.e. Specific attention is paid to reliability and complexity assessment of computer based task and the correlation between these vital characteristics of human performance. Mean time between failures MTBF = ∑tup,j/n = (28 + 16 + 20 + 10 + 30)/5 = 104/5 = 20.8 h. Mean time to repair MTTR = ∑tdown,j/n = (3 + 2 + 1 + 3 + 2)/5 = 11/5 = 2.2 h. Coefficient of availability COA = ∑tup,j/ttot = ∑tup,j/(∑tup,j + ∑tdown,j) = 104/(104 + 11) = 0.90435. Data : Data is a raw material of information.
