A framework for dependability evaluation of fieldbus networks

Abstract

This paper presents a framework to evaluate dependability of fieldbus networks. An hierarchical modeling approach is proposed, which considers both the effects of different kinds of faults-permanent, transient and common-cause-and the interaction between hardware and software components. Stochastic Petri nets are used as the modeling technique to obtain… (More)
