  • The paper presents an algorithm for evaluating performance distribution of complex series-parallel multi-state systems with common cause failures caused by propagation of failures in system elements. The failure propagation can have a selective effect, which means that the failures originated from different elements can cause failures of different subsets of system elements. The suggested algorithm is based on the universal generating function approach and a generalized reliability block… CONTINUE READING
