Gas turbine reliability measuring

Dear friends,
currently we are conducting a Gas turbine GE Frame 5 retrofiring by replacing an obsolete G.T Control system , Generator Control system , dysfunction Cooling System and upgrade the atomizing Air System plus overhauling and inspection the whole machine , the main objectives of project to disposal the obsolescent systems and enhance the machine reliability and availability , can any one advise how to measure the those objectives ?

RE: Gas turbine reliability measuring

What was the historical data? Unless you have money to burn, verification of reliability and availability is typically done by analysis, i.e, you use the estimated MTBF for the reliability and calculate the availability using MTBF, Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), and Mean Logistical Delay Time (MLDT), to calculate availability.
