Standby redundancy allocations in series and parallel systems
To enhance the performance of a system, a common practice employed by reliability engineers is to use redundant components in the system. In this paper we compare lifetimes of series (parallel) systems arising out of different allocations of one or two standby redundancies. These comparisons are made with respect to the increasing concave (convex) order, the hazard rate order, and the stochastic precedence order. The main results extend some related conclusions in the literature.
