Abstract : Bayes' Theorem is applied to the problem of formulating an optimum strategy for the troubleshooting of equipment failures. The probabilities attaching to hypotheses about the various possible causes of system failure are modified according to the theorem, and the process of testing and replacing components is structured so as to minimize the expected total cost of system restoration.
