Abstract
When evaluating possible contenders to replace a fleet of Canadian Forces (CF) vehicles, it is not enough to look solely at the contenders’ performance, in this case Mean Kilometres Between Mission Failures (MKBMF). In support of a tasking from the project management office for the Medium Support Vehicle System (PMO MSVS) to the Directorate of Materiel Group Operational Research (DMGOR), a procedure was developed to factor in the contenders’ experience (fleet usage) in order to determine the reliability of the observed MKBMF. We wish to determine the minimum MKBMF that a contending fleet can observe in order to satisfy the requirement that there be no less than K kilometres between mission failures, 95% of the time. It is shown that for a contending fleet with a total of T vehicle kilometres of in-service usage, the observed MKBMF must exceed the value MKBMFmin , where MKBMFmin = T/( (T/K) – 1.645(T/K)<1/2).
