Reliability and Quality of Service in Weighted Probabilistic Networks using Algebraic Decision Diagrams

by Bobbio, Andrea; Terruggia, Roberta

We discuss two types of interpretation of weights: weights as distances and weights as capacities. Correspondingly, two different algorithms based on a data structure called Algebraic Decision Diagram (ADD), are discussed and presented...

Truncation Approach with the Decomposition Method for System Reliability Analysis

by Yevkin, Olexandr

The Esary Proschan (EP) method and other approximations, based on minimal cut sets (MCSs) calculation, are commonly used in reliability system analysis. However, it is time consuming and even impossible to calculate all MCSs of large systems...
