Abstract : Systems of modules having individual BITs are studies for two failure-repair models: mutual independence of module states, or suspended animation (non-aging of good components during system downtime). Steady state availabilities are estimated using coherent structure techniques and empirically based estimates of BIT-related reduction in mean repair times.
