Abstract

How to determine subsystem’s reliability and evaluate the whole machine’s reliability of the CNC (computer numerical control) grinding machine tool is important for reliability design and promotion. Each subsystem was modeled by a different distribution based on collected data and the models were optimized by the modified gray correlation degree, which was called the similar slope and close median gray correlation method. Methods of generating random data were proposed for different models. The reliability evaluation algorithm based on Monte Carlo simulation was studied and the whole machine’s reliability of the CNC grinder was evaluated by the algorithm. The evaluation result by the Monte Carlo algorithm was compared using the observed value and the evaluation value by the whole fitting method. The results show that the point estimation value evaluated by the algorithm based on Monte Carlo has high accuracy. The interval estimation by the Monte Carlo method was 20.2% and 38.1% by the observed value and the whole fitting value, respectively, which has more practical engineering significance. The reliability evaluation method can be used to assess the whole CNC grinding machine’s reliability in reliability design, and is also one reference for reliability evaluation of other electromechanical equipment.
