  journal={IEEE Transactions on Reliability},
In previous studies that analyzed the reliability of multi-state systems, the precise values of the state performance levels and state probabilities of multi-state components were required. In many cases, however, there are insufficient data to obtain the state probabilities of components precisely. A method is proposed in this paper to analyze the reliability of multi-state systems when the available data of components are insufficient. Based on the Bayesian approach and the imprecise… CONTINUE READING
