Reliability Structures Consisting of Weighted Components: Synopsis and New Advances
Keywords:Reliability function, coherent systems, weighted structures, consecutive-type systems
Throughout the lines of the present article the family of reliability systems consisting of weighted components is examined. A synoptic exposition of the existing reliability structures with n weighted components is carried out. Among others, some newfangled and crucial points for every structure that belongs to this class are reported. In addition, a new weighted consecutive-type structure is introduced, while its characteristics are also studied in some detail.
