Mean Overall Repairing Time
expected time to achieve the following actions:
• the time spent before starting the repair b; and,
• the effective time to repair c; and,
• the time before the component is made available to be is put back into operation d
Note 1 to entry: See Figure 5, Figure 6 and Figure 7.
Note 2 to entry: The terms “repair”, “repairable”, “repaired” used in this Technical Report, unless otherwise
specified, are related to the overall repairing time (see Figure 5).
Note 3 to entry: When a safety system operating in demand mode is faulty, the risk disappears as soon as the
protected installation is placed in a safe state (e.g. stopped). In this case (see Figure 6 and Figure 7) the MTTS
replaces the MRT (see 3.1.36) with regard to the probabilistic calculations.
Note 4 to entry: This definition is in line with IEC 61508 but not with IEC 60050–191..
