We further suppose that the number of failures at each shock follows a truncated binomial distribution and the process of shocks is nonhomogeneous Poisson process. The signature-based expressions for the conditional entropy of T given T1 , the joint entropy, Kullback-Leibler K-L information, and mutual information of the lifetimes T and T1 are presented. Furthermore, we use the results to derive a sharp upper bound on the expected system lifetime in terms of the mean and the standard deviation of the underlying distribution. The concept of signature see, eg, Samaniego, 2007 has been used to evaluate the latter mean residual life functions. Communication networks have been used and studied for several decades, but their application and broad utilization has expanded dramatically in the last 15 years. Based on the practical and research success in building reliability into systems with system signatures, this is the first book treatment of the approach.

Lifeline networks, such as water distribution and transportation networks, are the backbone of our societies, and the study of their reliability of them is required. This study reveals that a slight change in the complex bridge network affects the reliability significantly. The applicability of the proposed methods is demonstrated by analysing a complex system reliability in the presence of common cause failures. In order to verify the correctness of Algorithm 3 which 380 is based on survival signature, the results have been compared with the solution of simulation method based on the structural function.

Rosen conducted some remarkable experiments on unidirectional fibrous composites that gave seminal insights into their failure under increasing tensile load. This approach is specially relevant in the determination of bathtub-shaped models and in burn-in procedures.

The system signature has been found to be useful for comparisons the performance and quantification of the reliability of coherent system. The results on distorted distributions are also used to get comparisons of finite mixtures. Here, Rosen's experiments are analyzed to determine the shape of a bundle. In the study of the reliability of systems in reliability engineering, it has been defined several measures in the reliability and survival analysis literature. A real data set is also analysed for an illustration of the findings. These comparisons-which have been done over the years-demonstrate the practical, feasible and fruitful use of the tool in building reliable systems.

An open problem regarding coherent systems is comparing the expected system lifetimes. Based on the practical and research success in building reliability into systems with system signatures, this is the first book treatment of the approach. The reliability importance of components is derived analytically to evaluate the relative importance of the component with respect to the overall reliability of the system. The problem of comparing system performance using the expected system lifetime is still an open problem. The book compared actual system lifetimes where the tool has been and has not been used. K-terminal reliability is defined as the probability that a subset K of the network nodes can communicate with each other. The practical, standardized, technical tool for characterizing reliability in systems is system signatures which was created in 1985 and since has developed into a powerful tool for qualifying reliability.

In order to perform reliability analysis on systems with common cause failures, the α-factor model-based time independent and time varying methods are introduced, respectively. Finally, new results and future directions for system signatures are also explored. In brief, the signature of an n-component system is a probability vector whose ith element is the probability that the ith component failure is fatal to the system. The feasibility and efficiency of the proposed approach have been demonstrated by a case study. We study the main stochastic orderings: hazard rate, stochastic, mean residual life and likelihood ratio orders. Approximations are developed and justified when the underlying component distribution is unknown.

The book compared actual system lifetimes where the tool has been and has not been used. It should be mentioned that the probability matrix with elements defined as 1. Several examples are examined graphically and numerically. Stochastic and ageing properties of the proposed failure probabilities are studied under different conditions. The reliability function, the mean residual lifetime and the hazard rate are helpful tools to analyze the maintenance policies and burn-in. In addition, the number of cycles in an interval is assumed to follow a Poisson distribution. Finally, some recommendations along with concluding remarks are provided.

The components are subject to failure due to the occurrence of shocks appearing based on a counting process, and some of the components may fail as a result of each shock. If all the edges have the same probability of failing, this leads to the so-called reliability polynomial of the network. The survival signature is closely related with system signature. In this article, we carry out the stochastic comparison between coherent systems through the relative aging order when component lifetimes are independent and identically distributed. The occurrence of signatures in a variety of reliability contexts is noted. This paper considers information properties of coherent systems when component lifetimes are independent and identically distributed. It utilizes the structure function to combine these estimators to obtain the system reliability estimator.

Over the past ten years the broad applicability of system signatures has become apparent and the tool's utility in coherent systems and communications networks firmly established.

The main characteristic of our use of the term is that a system works or fails to work as a function of the working or failure of its components. That is, these subsystems are no longer disjoint. Multiple component failure modes, as well, are considered, and sensitivities are analysed to identify the most critical Common-Cause Group to the survivability of the system.
