Abstract: In this study, a method for transient analysis of availability and survivability of a system with the standby components is presented. The availability and survivability of the standby systems is evaluated in two cases, the standby systems with the identical components and the standby systems with the non-identical components. In this study the Markov models, eigen vectors and eigen values for analyzing the transient availability and survivability of the system are employed. The method is implemented through an algorithm which is tested in MATLAB (matrix laboratory) programming environment. The new method enjoys a stronger mathematical foundation and more flexibility for analyzing the transient availability and survivability of the system.
