Abstract:

The authors define a hierarchy of six successively weaker conditions for component relevancy in a multistate structure of M1 performance levels. They show that the six conditions are distinct except for M1,2. Presented are basic structural properties corresponding to the six conditions a the definition and properties of the dual structure, b redundancy at a lower level is preferable to redundancy at a higher level, and c the definition and properties of the structural importance of components.
