K.G. RAMAMURTHY, Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore
SUMMARY. In this paper, we characterise the coefficients in the simple form of the reliability function of Consecutive-$k$-out-$n$:G systems. We also provide a table using which the reliability function can be written down when $k \le n \le 6k+4$.
AMS (1991) subject classification. 62N05
