Consider a parallel system consisting of three components, where the failure rate of each component is λ. Answer the following questions. a. What is the MTTF of this system? Simplify your answer to a final expression. b. Assume the three parallel units are connected to a majority-voter. If the reliability of each component is R and the reliability of the voter is three times the reliability of a component, what is the expression representing the reliability of this new system?
MTTF: Mean Time To Failure, i.e., the expected time until the first failure in a system.Failure rate: The rate at which a component fails during operation.Reliability: The probability that a system operates without failure over a given time period.
