The Meantime to Failure is a statistic used to determine how much time a system spends to enter one of its absorption states. This statistic can be used in most areas of knowledge. In engineering, for example, can be used as a measure of equipment reliability, and in business, as a measure of processes performance. This work presents a method to obtain the Meantime to Failure from a Continuous Time Markov Chain models. The method is intuitive and is simpler to be implemented, since, it consists of solving a system of linear equations.
