Since Birnbaum importance was introduced in 1969, there have beenmore than twenty kinds of importancemeasures so far. Among the various measures, Birnbaum importance plays an extremely important role becausemany importancemeasures have been defined under its illumination and have relationships with it. A lot of work has been done for Birnbaum importance in consecutivesystems since the systems were introduced. Because the problems in practice are increasingly complicated, in 2007, Zhao et al… CONTINUE READING
