In fact, data regarding the past failures and repair events where spread among different sources and not complete to be used. This limit was overcome through the use of estimations asked to the plant experts of TBF and TTR values. The estimations allowed building triangular distributions for the two variables for each component to be used for the simulation. Anyways, it is evident that a reliable and complete historical data base would have made the calculations more precise through a fitting of the distributions over the real data.
