Abstract: with n independent and non-identical components. It is assumed here that, the failure rates of the system’s components are constants. We used three different methods to improve the system given. Two reliability characteristics (the mean time to failure and the reliability function) are used to perform the system improvement. For this purpose, the reliability functions and the mean times to failures of the original and improved systems are obtained. The results given in this paper generalize the results given in the literatures by setting n = 1, 2. An illustrative numerical example is presented to compare the different reliability factors obtained.
