A Multiphase Process Approach to the Analysis of the Reliability and Safety in Maritime Transport Systems
Times cited (SCOPUS): 3
ABSTRACT: The main aim of the paper is to develop an original approach to the analysis of the reliability and safety of maritime transport systems and the processes. It is done with accordance to multiphase process approach to reliability and safety analysis. To achieve this goal, the basic knowledge of the reliability theory of technical systems was discussed. The multiphase systems and damage trees were also characterized. The next steps of the developed solution were discussed using the s / v Ramdas sea disaster. Finally, a summary of the obtained results is presented.
