A new and computationaly efficient heuristic algorithm is developed for reliability and maintainability (R&M) allocation in complex hierarchical systems (CHS). This approach has advantage over other available. methods in that mean-time-to repair (MTTR) and other R&M parameters are estimated at the component level before design. The R&M allocation is achieved by decomposing the system R&M state spar-e into a hierarchy of subsystems and reformulating the problem as a reliability network equivalent.
