Reliability evaluation of non-reparable three-state systems using Markov model and its comparison with the UGF and the recursive methods

Abstract

In multi-state systems (MSS) reliability problems, it is assumed that the components of each subsystem have different performance rates with certain probabilities. This leads into extensive computational efforts involved in using the commonly employed universal generation function (UGF) and the recursive algorithm to obtain reliability of systems consisting… (More)
