[Title] Reliability Modeling and Optimization for Systems of Degrading Components

[Abstract] New system reliability models and analysis tools have been developed for different applications for systems of degrading components. System reliability analyses and maintenance optimization, involving multiple failure processes, are challenging research topics, particularly when the failure processes, such as degradation processes and random shocks, are competing and dependent. Traditional system reliability models are generally not applicable when there are multiple dependent degradation paths, yet many systems behave this way, and better models are needed, particularly if the components are individually repairable. In this talk, we present the first fundamental models to analyze the reliability of these systems, as well as several important extensions, including current work on clusters of components, repairable systems reliability and dynamic maintenance planning. Based on these new reliability models, different maintenance policies are derived to provide cost effective maintenance plans.
