In the paper the basic reliability structures of complex technical systems were described. Selected models of the reliability structure were presented. This original paper is a proposition of using reliability structures and based on them algorithms to ensure better diagnostics, maintenance and control of complex technical systems. Some practical examples of using reliability structures were indicated. The presented structures can be put into use in human-machine interfaces to inform operators about the current system condition and to automate some engineering processes and procedures concerning the system reliability.
