Based on historical data, a large percentage of U.S. military systems struggle to achieve their reliability requirements, resulting in significant penalties, such as decreased system availability, increased life-cycle costs, and schedule delays. These impacts are all applicable to studies of Risk Assessment and Analysis of Alternatives (AoA)—which assess technical, schedule, and cost risks. In order to effectively analyze the reliability risks for programs of interest in a Risk Assessment or AoA, a new approach has been developed.
