RROS reliability redundancy optimization solver: A Microsoft Excel add-in

Wei Xie
This thesis proposes an implementation of an improved algorithm for solving nonlinear separable integer programming problems, as they arise in the field of system reliability. The reliability redundancy optimization solver (RROS) improves on a hybrid technique of dynamic programming with depth first search with tighter variable bounds. The implementation takes the form of an Excel add-in, which will be familiar to users with little formal OR/MS training. The user interface design is discussed. Example applications...
