2R LCA Documentation

This module runs the following analysis types over a system's life cycle:

  1. Simulations with Mean Time To Failure, Mean Time To Maintenance, and Cost NPV distribution fitting.
  2. Sensitivity Analysis for both K_min and S_min (operation limits).
  3. Cost Optimization with respect to the initial state of the system (R).
  4. Profit Optimization with respect to the initial state of the system (R).

All analysis types are carried out by a thread pool, which insures that all of the available processors are used in an optimal way. Thus, it runs the simulations one after the other if the machine has a single-core processor (Pentium IV, AMD64, etc), but it handles multiple cores if present (Core2Duo, i7, AMD X2, etc) to run simulations in parallel. For example, a quad-core processor allows the module to perform 4 analysis iterations at once, making the entire process 4 times faster than with Mathematica, Mathlab, or any other script-interpreting software package.
