The purpose of this report is to look at the measures of importance of components in systems in terms of reliability. In the first work of Birnbaum (1968) on this subject, many interesting studies were created and important indicators were constructed that allowed to organize the components of complex systems. They are helpful in analyzing the reliability of the designed systems, establishing the principles of operation and maintenance. The significance measures presented here are collected and

They concern an approach in which both elements and systems are binary, and the possibility of generalization to multistate systems is only mentioned. Among the discussed is one new proposal using the methods of game theory, combining the sensitivity to the structure of the system and the operational effects on the system performance. The presented severity measures use a knowledge of the system structure as well as reliability and wear and tear, and whether the components can be repaired and maintained.
