Abstract : A computer program is described that permits the calculation of the exact reliability of complex systems. The concept of a 'Coherent Structure' is used to represent the system as a two terminal network. This thesis describes the data structures and algorithms needed to take the two terminal network, produce the proper arithmetic expression, and do an evaluation to find an exact reliability.
