Abstract

The structure function describes the functioning of a system dependent on the states of its components, and is central to theory of system reliability. The survival signature is a summary of the structure function which is sufficient to derive the system’s reliability function. Since its introduction in 2012, the survival signature has received much attention in the literature, with developments on theory, computation and generalizations. This paper presents an introductory overview of the survival signature, including some recent developments. We discuss challenges for practical use of survival signatures for large systems.
