    A computer program for calculation of reliability and availability of systems is described. The program is written in B6700 ALGOL. The program can be used for reliability analysis of both mechanical, electric and electronic systems, also systems containing standby units. The description consists of a summary, clock diagrams and complete listings of the four versions of the program in addition to examples of input and output. There are four versions of the program with different distribution functions for the times to failure and repairtimes. Two of the versions use variance reduction - importance sampling and the others, direct simulation. The basic theories and concepts are outlined in an appendix.
