Abstract:


With the progression of technology, models of linear multistate consecutively-connected systems (LMCCSs) have been applied more widely, such as in telecommunication systems and the Internet of Things, among other applications. LMCCSs contain a series of linearly arranged nodes, and any disconnection between nodes will lead to the failure of the entire system. Thus, the reliability of a linear multistate system is affected by many factors, such as the positioning of elements. To be able to incorporate different types of complicated practical factors, researchers have proposed various extensions for the LMCCS model. Moreover, models have been proposed to study the optimal system configurations of such systems while considering reliability and some other objectives or constraints. Due to the amount of existing research on LMCCSs, this paper aims to review the related literature, classify these works, and elicit some future research directions.

Keywords:

Linear multistate consecutively-connected system, reliability of LMCCS, optimal system considerations, optimization, reliability, evaluation.
