Abstract:

System performance can be measured by means of loss functions and risk functions. Inequalities are derived which provide upper and lower bounds on the total system risk function in terms of the more readily evaluated individual sybsystem risk functions. Bounds are given for the cases in which the members of an arbitrary collection of interconnected subsystems are either statistically independent or dependent in operation. Author
