Objectives We provide a comprehensive overview of reliability theory areas with practical relevance; ensuring reliability and lifetime of a device from the early concept to the analysis of Markov chains. A device is assembled from different components. The failure probability of the individual components is known. Typical questions of reliability theory: - What is the failure probability of the device? - What is the distribution of the lifetime of a device? - Should components still be intact after a certain number of operating hours be replaced by new ones? - For which components should spare parts be provided? - How many spare parts must be available to keep a device operating with a given probability for a certain period of time can?
