A study is made of a program control of inclusion of standby elements that does not require a feedback. The optimal instants of inclusion of the elements are indicated prior to the beginning of operation of the system. The distribution function of the life length of the system for arbitrary distribution laws of the life lengths of the elements and for arbitrary instants of inclusion of the standby elements is found. The optimal instants of inclusion of the standby elements are determined from the condition of minimum probability of failure in the system in a given time interval. The case in which the life lengths of all the elements have the same exponential distribution is examined in detail.
