ABSTRACT
In this paper we propose a new coverage model which shows improvement in the availability of the system and the reduction in the cost which are important measures for reliability. The present study discusses the effect of coverage factor on the reliability characteristics of a parallel redundant complex system. The system is analysed under Preemptive resume-repair policy. Using the concept of coverage factor, the availability and cost analysis of the system have been computed and analysed by graphical illustrations.
