A mathematical model for assessing the impact of cannibalization on the system reliability is presented. To show that cannibalization can strictly increase reliability we develop a model (reliability) of cannibalization for the probability of survival of a system with k lines of n series connected components when no short interruptions to the system are… CONTINUE READING
