Abstract [en]

One of the widely used NHPP models in reliability is the so-called power-law model, also known as the Duane model. A power-law model can be applied in analyzing failure data of both software and hardware systems. Nevertheless, the power-law model is no longer applicable to describe the failure behavior when a hardware/software embedded system is concerned since the failures can come from both hardware and software. How to analyze the failure data of this type is still a problem to study and a new type of model is needed to develop. In this paper, we consider the superposition of the power-law models (SPLM) as one candidate to describe the failure behaviors of hardware/software systems. The characteristics of SPLMs are thoroughly studied. It is shown that an SPLM has the intensity function that can be increasing, decreasing, increasing-then-decreasing or decreasing-then-increasing. Specifically, the identification method of the superposition of power-law processes is provided by using the TTT-plot technique. The TTT-transform of a superposition of power-law processes is DFR-like. Therefore, the conditional TTT-plot should present a convex pattern if the system failures follow a superposition process by a few power-law processes. This provides us an easy way to identify the model when the testing data is available.
