Optimizing survivability of vulnerable series-parallel multi-state systems

  title={Optimizing survivability of vulnerable series-parallel multi-state systems},
  author={Gregory Levitin and Anatoly Lisnianski},
  journal={Rel. Eng. & Sys. Safety},
In this paper we consider vulnerable systems which can have different states corresponding to different combinations of available elements composing the system. Each state can be characterized by a system performance rate, which is the quantitative measure of a system’s ability to perform its task. Both the impact of external factors (attack) and internal causes (failures) affect system survivability which is determined as probability of meeting a given demand. We formulate the problem of… CONTINUE READING
