Abstract

In railway applications, as in other industrial fields, the design of any subsystem has to face Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) analysis, if Product Assurance requirements are specified. For this reason, the first step in the design process is to translate the overall system RAM requirements into requirements for each subsystem, equipment or component. Starting from the different approaches usually adopted, the authors present in this paper the characteristics of a software tool able to automatically optimize RAM parameters (failure and repair rates) allocation, once known system dependability targets. 1 Introduction In a Guided Transport System (GTS) aim of the companies which realize any subsystem with Product Assurance r
