Abstract

In this paper, we present a mathematical systemability function approximation for predicting the reliability of complex systems in the field using the Taylor series expansion. Numerical reliability comparisons for systems with and without considering the field environment as well as systemability function approximation are given to illustrate the results. Often the exact systemability function for a complex system is a lot more difficult to obtain. The proposed systemability function approximation seems to be simple and accurate and can be easily used to obtain the reliability estimation of complex systems in the field. Thus, it is worth the extra effort to further validate the results with other complex applications.
