Abstract
We describe methodologies for the reliability analysis of multistate systems. Especially, we are concentrating on the concept of a minimal path and a cut vectors. The problem of interest is known as the multistate twoterminal reliability computation, and we regard how the concept of the minimal path and cut vectors is used for modelling the reliability of these types of systems. The main focus of this presentation is to develop an algorithm for obtaining minimal path vectors for multistate twoterminal network with integer capacity of any link. The proposed algorithm used minimal path vectors for a binary system with the same structure as the regarded one. It is based on addition of vectors, so it is simply for understanding and fast. Examples are included to illustrate the Algorithm.
