Abstract:

Kettelle 1962 presents an algorithm for allocating redundancy so as to maximize system reliability without exceeding a specified cost or equivalently, achieve a specified reliability at minimum cost. In the present paper we develop an algorithm to solve the more general problem of maximizing system reliability without exceeding any of several linear constraints.
