Original Abstract

Nowadays the systems have often a complex structure and it is relatively difficult to ensure their reliability. Therefore it is important to predict reliability of systems already at design phase. This way is suitable for the prevention of the frequently failures. Prevention of frequently failures means a higher lifetime and cost savings for producer. This paper deals with a modern approach of quantitative reliability analysis – using the Monte Carlo statistical reliability analysis and its comparison with the conventional approaches. The Monte Carlo method is explained at a fundamental level with emphasis on its application in reliability analysis of systems with a complex structure.

Czech abstract

V dnešní době mají systémy často složitou strukturu a je poměrně náročné zajistit jejich spolehlivost. Je tedy důležité predikovat spolehlivost již ve fázi návrhu. Tento způsob slouží jako prevence proti častým poruchám, což znamená vyšší životnost a ušetření nákladů výrobce. Tento článek se zabývá moderní metodou kvantitativní analýzy spolehlivosti - použitím statistické spolehlivostní analýzy Monte Carlo a porovnáním této metody s tradičními metodami. Metoda Monte Carlo je zde popsána s ohledem na její aplikaci pro spolehlivostní analýzu systémů se složitou strukturou.
