Mean Time Between Failures (MTTB)

Definition

The average duration of time passing between consecutive failures of a system or product, assuming the system is repaired following each failure and returned online.

Application

MTTB is estimated as the reciprocal of the failure rate. Conversely, the reciprocal of MTTB gives the failure rate.
