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?
