Verifying common-cause reduction rules for fault tolerant systems via simulation using a stress-strength failure model

Redundant programmable electronic systems are commonly used in many industrial processes for safety protection and high availability process control. Common-cause failures can significantly reduce the benefits of the redundancy designed into this equipment. To improve on this situation, a number of...
