Improvement of the GO-FLOW Methodology
The authors have developed a system reliability analysis methodology GO-FLOW, which is a success oriented system reliability analysis method. An improvement of the GO-FLOW methodology has been made for being able to treat continuously maintained components. An explanation is made for a simple engineering system, and the improved GO-FLOW is applied to a reliability analysis of component cooling water system CCWS of a nuclear power plant.
