The generalized multi-state <i>k</i> -out-of-<i>n</i> system model proposed recently provides more flexibility in describing practical systems. In this model, there are <i>n</i> components in the system where each component, as well as the system, can be in one of <i>M</i>+1 possible states: 0, 1,hellip, <i>m</i>. The system is in state <i>j</i> or above if… CONTINUE READING
