What is it about?

we developed a reliability model for a non-repairable discrete time MSS with random and statistically dependent state transition probabilities. The dependence among the random state transition probabilities of the system is modeled by a copula function.

Why is it important?

We find that the system reliability has strong sensitivity to the assumption of random transition probability.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations.
