Reliability evaluation of multi-state systems subject to imperfect coverage using OBDD

Yung-Ruei Chang, S.V. Amari, Sy-Yen Kuo
2002 Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing, 2002. Proceedings.  
This paper presents an efficient approach based on OBDD for the reliability analysis of a multi-state system subject to imperfect fault-coverage with combinatorial performance requirements.  ...  Since there exist dependencies between combinatorial performance requirements, we apply the Multi-state Dependency Operation (MDO) of OBDD to deal with these dependencies in a multi-state system.  ...  Reliability/Availability Evaluation of a Multistate System In this section, an algorithm similar to SEA for evaluating the system reliability of multi-state imperfect coverage is proposed.  ...

A Survey on Modeling and Enhancing Reliability of Wireless Sensor Network

Latha Venkatesan, S. Shanmugavel, Chandrasekaran Subramaniam
2013 Wireless Sensor Network  
This paper discusses the different modeling approaches to evaluate the reliability and classification of the approaches to improve it.  ...  Design of reliable wireless sensor network (WSN) need to address the failure of single or multiple network components and implementation of the techniques to tolerate the faults occurred at various levels  ...  Reliability level of the network can evaluated using the tool called as reliability modeling. Reliability modeling and analysis are key steps to the design and optimization of sensor network systems.  ...

Alternative Power Systems and Devices [chapter]

2017 Systems, Controls, Embedded Systems, Energy, and Machines  
Reasonable efforts have been made to publish reliable data and information, but the author and the publisher cannot assume responsibility for the validity of all materials or for the consequences of their  ...  use.  ...  Unfortunately, it is impossible to build real systems that satisfy hard real-time requirements. Due to the imperfection of hardware (and of designers), any system may break.  ...

The environment is an essential component of multi-agent systems, which is often used to coordinate the behaviour of individual agents.  ...  Instead of evaluating only the behavioural complexity of the system after exploration, I propose to measure what the system can accomplish.  ...  We show that both approaches perform much better than the state of the art, and that statistically the two approaches perform very similarly, suggesting that entropy reduction is a useful heuristic even  ...
