Abstract : The problem of constructing a high-reliability automaton reduces to the following: given a structurally complete system of functional elements as well as transition and output tables of a discrete-action automaton, construct a self-correcting discrete-action s-rank automaton from elements of this system. The rank of the automaton is taken as the maximum number of any elements that may malfunction without disturbing the automaton's performance. It is shown that an increase in the rank leads to an increase in reliability. The synthesis of an automaton of the rank 1 is examined.
