A new approach to modeling the system reliability: dynamic reliability block diagrams
The dynamic RBD permits to model the dynamic reliability behavior of a system through the proposed various dependencies models as well as redundancy and load sharing policies models.

A reliability markup language that can be used to formally describe dynamic RBD models is defined and an algorithm that automatically converts a DRBD model into a colored Petri net is presented, providing a potential solution to automated verification of DRBD models.
Reliability of k-out-of-n systems with phased-mission requirements and imperfect fault coverage
Explicit and implicit methods for probabilistic common-cause failure analysis
Analysis of generalized phased-mission system reliability, performance, and sensitivity
This paper proposes a generalized phased-mission system (GPMS) analysis methodology called GPMS-CPR that has high computation efficiency and is easy to implement. GPMS-CPR can evaluate a wider range…
