ABSTRACT: An innovative approach and a new significant theoretical result are proposed for the safety analysis of multistate ageing systems that consider their components’ dependency. A safety function and a risk function are defined and determined for a multistate ageing system with independent and dependent components. As a special case, the safety of a series system is modelled using its components’ piecewise exponential safety functions. Results are applied to examine and characterize safety of an exemplary car wheel system.

KEYWORDS: multistate system, ageing, dependent failures, safety, car transport
