This book provides a descriptive account of various types of multistate system, bound-for multistate systems, probabilistic modeling of monitoring and maintenance of multistate systems with components along with examples of applications.
- Looks at modern multistate reliability theory with applications covering a refined description of components and system states.
- Presents new research, such as Bayesian assessment of system availabilities and measures of component importance.
- Complements the methodological description with two substantial case studies.
Reliability engineers and students involved in the field of reliability, applied mathematics and probability theory will benefit from this book.
