Recent Developments in Multistate Reliability Theory
We start by shortly reviewing some recent results on bounds for the availability and unavailability, to any level, in a fixed time interval for multistate monotone systems based on corresponding information on the multistate components. Secondly, we discuss some very recent ideas on how to generalize binary measures of component importance to the multistate case, especially focusing on binary type multistate coherent systems.
