Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is an introduction to the problems of assessing the reliability of technical systems. Student will learn to work with the distribution of a random variable. It will be able parameter estimates random variable.

Teaching methods



The course deals with some issues mathematical reliability theory and its applications. The first section briefly describes the types of random variables used to describe the states of technical objects. Are also explained in detail the procedures used in the planning and evaluation of reliability tests. The third section briefly discusses the issue of renewal theory and its applications.
