Abstract:

A reliability analysis of various integrant structures is performed using flowgraphs. The flowgraph representation of the reliability and effectiveness of a multimoded system is demonstrated. This solution provides a concise, pictorial illustration of the mathematical elements of the system. A Markov analysis of the multimoded system is performed by means of a Markov graph. This solution yields the state and transitional probabilities of moving from one mode or state to another. Flowgraphs are used for a resource allocation problem to determine the cost and sensitivity of the system to changes in various parameters. Author
