Bayesian Estimation of the Limiting Availability in a Repairable One-Unit System
This work presents a Bayesian approach for estimating the limiting availability of an one-unit repairable system. A Bayesian analysis is developed considering an informative prior and a less informative prior distribution, respectively. Simulations are presented to study the performance of the Bayesian solutions. The maximum likelihood method is also revisited. Finally, a case study is considered, the Bayesian methodology is applied to estimate the limiting availability of a palletizer, which is used in the packaging of glass bottles. Extensions to a coherent system are also discussed.
