Abstract

A compound dependability measure is proposed and analyzed under the Markovian assumption by Csenki (1996). We extend his analysis to the semi-Markov setting and obtain the corresponding closed form expression. The analysis is quite simple and transform-free. The resulting formula has a clear probabilistic interpretatior. As a numerical example, we explore the behavior of a multi-mode system with periodic maintenance.
