Advances in Mathematical Modeling for Reliability discusses primary concerns on mathematical modeling in reliability thought and its purposes. starting with an in depth dialogue of graphical modeling and Bayesian networks, the point of interest shifts in the direction of repairable structures: a dialogue approximately how delicate availability calculations parameter offerings, and emulators give you the power to accomplish such calculations on complex structures to a good measure of accuracy and in a computationally effective demeanour. one other factor that's addressed is how competing dangers come up in reliability and upkeep research throughout the ways that information is censored. combination failure expense modeling can be some degree of dialogue, in addition to the signature of platforms, the place the homes of the method in the course of the signature from the chance distributions at the life of the parts are individual. The final 3 issues of dialogue are relatives between getting older and stochastic dependence, theoretical advances in modeling, inference and computation, and up to date advances in recurrent occasion modeling and inference.

6 Note that the instantiation runs always in time linear in the number of PDAG nodes. After all simpliﬁcations, we get the new formula ϕA,D = (e2 ∧e4 ) ∨ ((e1 ∨ (e2 ∧e5 ))∧e3 ) which is the speciﬁc SF of interest. This serves as starting point for Phase 3. The corresponding PDAG ϕA,D is depicted in Fig. 2 (a). Phase 3: Exact Reliability Computation – cd-PDAG Construction The primary goal of our method is to compute the exact reliability Conn 2 , which in our example is equal to the probability P (ϕA,D ) of the speciﬁc SF.

Besides as we made the discrete and ﬁnite assumption for all the CPDs, the domain of XtD , t ≥ 1 has to be discrete and ﬁnite which is not natural for a duration distribution. Basically, we overcome this issue by setting an upper time bound Dmax large enough compared to the dynamic of the studied system. Consequently, XtD takes its values in the set X D = {1, . . , Dmax }. The CPD of XtD , t ≥ 2 plays an analogous role except it has also to update the remaining time to spend in the current state at each sequence step.

Thus, the process generated by a GDM is then Graphical Modeling and Bayesian Networks 20 similar to a discrete semi-Markovian process [10]. Indeed, thanks to the variable XtD , it is possible to specify any kind of state sojourn time distributions. Consequently exploiting the powerful modeling properties of PGMs, the GDMs account for convenient, intuitive and easily generalizable tools to represent complex degradation processes. Figure 1.
