Fuzzy Rule-Based Investigation of System Reliability with Reliability Block Diagram Method


  • Hamid Ali Hama Salih hamid.ali.hama.salih@gmail.com


Fuzzy reliability, failure data, fuzzy possibility, membership function.


This study analyzes the dependability of a simple network architecture using a fuzzy method that is similar to a stochastic one. This concept is taken from the Fuzzy Fault Tree Analysis (FFTA), which considers the OR and AND gate connections between sets and the maximum and minimum of the membership function inside each set. A Fuzzy Reliability Block Diagram (FRBD) has a maximum of the membership functions in case of parallel connection and a minimum of the membership functions in case of series connection.
