  • This paper proposes efficient methods to assess the reliability of phased-mission systems (PMS) considering both imperfect fault coverage (IPC), and common-cause failures (CCF). The IPC introduces multimode failures that must be considered in the accurate reliability analysis of PMS. Another difficulty in analysis is to allow for multiple CCF that can affect different subsets of system components, and which can occur s-dependently. Our methodology for resolving the above difficulties is to… CONTINUE READING
