StandbyDistribution

StandbyDistribution[dist1, {dist2, ..., distn}]
represents a standby distribution with component lifetime distributions . When component fails, component will become active.

StandbyDistribution[dist1, {dist2, ..., distn}, p]
represents a standby distribution where switching from component to component succeeds with probability p.

StandbyDistribution[dist1, {dist2, ..., distn}, sdist]
represents a standby distribution where the switch component has lifetime distribution sdist.

StandbyDistribution[dist1, {..., {disti, inactive, disti, active}, ...}, ...]
represents a standby distribution where the ^(th) component lifetime distribution follows in inactive mode and in active mode.
