Abstract:

This report is concerned with multiple-line redundancy, a means of increasing the reliability of electronic systems. It describes in detail a procedure for synthesizing redundant systems in an optimum manner. The procedure balances the reliability advantage of redundancy against the cost, weight and power penalties it introduces. It is also applicable to other problems which require the optimization of a large number of binary decisions. The report describes a program which has been written to implement the procedure on a digital computer. The program has been run successfully on example networks and is now ready for specific application.
