Discrete event simulation versus conventional system reliability analysis approaches

Igor Kozine

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) environments are rapidly developing and appear to be promising tools for building reliability and risk analysis models of safety-critical systems and human operators. If properly developed, they are an alternative to the conventional human reliability analysis models and systems analysis methods such as fault and event trees and Bayesian networks. As one part, the paper describes briefly the author’s experience in applying DES models to the analysis of safety-critical systems in different domains. The other part of the paper is devoted to comparing conventional approaches to system reliability analysis with DES.
