#### Description

An important problem of many complex systems is that of assessing the reliability in the minimum probability of survival, from the reliabilities of the components. If system performance can be represented by a network flow diagram, the system probability of failure can be expressed in terms of path probabilities of failure, each of which is a function of component failure R.probabilities.

A Reliability-Confidence Methodology for Complex Systems

La Jolla, CA

An important problem of many complex systems is that of assessing the reliability in the minimum probability of survival, from the reliabilities of the components. If system performance can be represented by a network flow diagram, the system probability of failure can be expressed in terms of path probabilities of failure, each of which is a function of component failure R.probabilities.
