Abstract : This paper establishes the accuracy of a sparing technique applicable during early configuration development by comparing it to an analytical solution of the sparing problem. Testing of the prediction technique was accomplished for three basic time to failure density functions under a wide range of sparing configuration arrangements. Quantities varied for each probability density function included type of sparing configuration, length of sparing time interval, and type of sparing process. (Modified author abstract)
