On the Use of "Importance Weights" in Assessing Subsystem Reliability
April 1973 (vol. 22 no. 4)
pp. 424-425
E.G. Mallach, Honeywell Information Systems
The importance of obtaining correct circuit outputs may vary from one input to another, along a continuum of "importance weights." Assigning such weights introduces a concept of degraded operation, where some relatively unimportant outputs may be in error. A simple procedure is given for assessing reliability using these weights.
Index Terms:
Combinatorial networks, degraded operation, fault tolerance, importance weights, reliability.
