Abstract:

It is often difficult and time consuming, if not computationally impossible, to locate a failed component in a large complex system. Recently, the U.S. Army Research and Technology Laboratories at Moffett Field, California, have established a theory stating that the minimum number of test points required for conclusive detection of system failure is equal to the total number of terminal test points this set of points constitutes the optimal choice. In this report the authors have developed an optimal diagnostic strategy for finding a failed component in a malfunctioning system.
