Index terms- Availability, Differential Difference Equations, Failure Rate, Matrix method, Markov Graph, MATLAB, MTTF, Repair rate
Abstact: In this paper, MATLAB has been applied on differential difference equation to obtain availability, MTTF etc. of a complex system. Though availability can also be found by other methods like matrix method , Laplace transformation method  etc., but with the help of MATLAB it is easy to find availability compared to other methods. Zaidi, Zeenat et. al.  applied the method of MATLAB to a simple system. We in this paper applied the MATLAB to a two element standby system having perfect switching and also compared the result with matrix method and found that results obtained match completely.
