Evaluating the KTI Monte Carlo Method for System Reliability Calculations


This paper describes and analyses the Kumamoto, Tanaka, Inoue (KTI) Monte Carlo method for estimating the reliability R of an s-coherent system by bracketing it between deterministic lower and upper bounds, and then positioning R between the bounds as a weighted average of the structure functions of Monte Carlo generated k-vectors. The procedure is… (More)
