Availability

The probability that a device is operating successfully at a given moment in time. This is a measure of the “uptime” and is defined in units of percent. For most tested and repaired safety system components, the availability varies as a saw tooth with time as governed by the proof test and repair cycles. Thus the integrated average availability is used to calculate the average probability of failure on demand. See PFDavg.
