reliability

in the law of evidence, the aspect of evidence that the fact-finder feels able to rely upon in coming to a decision. Before the evidence can be relied upon, it must usually also be credible. It is at this stage that a court may believe a witness because he says he saw the accused stab the victim, but the court may or may not rely upon that evidence depending upon the circumstances, such as the prevailing light or weather conditions or state of mind of the witness. See CREDIBILITY.

The values of objective function (OF) in terms of percentage improvement obtained by applying the MCSA and selective rerouting simultaneously in comparison with the best performing individual dispatching rule with selective rerouting as defined in section 4 at different values of MTTR and breakdown level is summarized in Table II.
MTTR was selected as a key component for analysis since it is a significant piece of the depot repair turn around time.
If the MTBF and MTTR of a component are known, its availability can be computed using the following equation:
The MTBA was just over an hour, and the MTTR was three minutes for full exhaust and one minute when splicing was used.
Both units are designed with features that improve reliability, functionality, MTBF (mean time between failures) and MTTR (mean time to repair).
The new HPA allows for a switchless redundancy, configurable RF output power and extremely low MTTR using interchangeable RF plug-in modules.
Analyzing this formula it can be said that we want MTTF to be big and MTTR to be small or in other words, an effective way to increase a system's availability is to improve its maintainability by minimising the downtime (Stapelberg, 2008).
