Description

Mean time between failures (MTBF) is the predicted elapsed time between inherent failures of a mechanical system, during normal system operation. MTBF can be calculated as the arithmetic mean (average) time between failures of a system. The term is used in both plant and equipment maintenance contexts.

In general, MTBF is the "up-time" between two failure states of a repairable system during operation as outlined here:
