A repairable system is usually defined as a system that able to return to its function after each failure. Optimal maintenance strategies necessitate the estimation of the reliability of complex repairable systems accurately and numerous models and methods have been developed for system reliability prediction. Thus, this project shall come out with an Excel spread sheet that used Monte Carlo method of using random number to solve for the number of failure and time to failure of a repairable system. Where, the developed spread sheet shall only focuses on the four types of main distributions which are Normal distribution, Lognormal distribution, Weibull distribution, and exponential distribution. Besides that, the developed spread sheet is developed with aim of improving the accuracy and applicability prediction of repairable system, the Monte Carlo solution developed shall later be compared with the evaluation made by the existing reliability software.
