This work presents a Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework taking into account the usage of the actuators to preserve system reliability while maximizing control performance. Two approaches are proposed to preserve system reliability: a global approach that integrates in the control algorithm a representation of system reliability, and a local approach that integrates a representation of component reliability. The trade-off between the system reliability and the control performance should be

The effectiveness and benefits of the proposed control framework are discussed through its application to an over-actuated system.
