An n-component system that fails if and only if at least k of the n components fail is called a k-out-of-n:F system. Based on these two definitions, a k-out-of-n:G system is equivalent to an (n − k + 1)-out-of-n:F system. The term k-out-of-n system is often used to indicate either a G system or an F system or both. Since the value of n is usually… CONTINUE READING
