Abstract : Consider a series system with n components. Let X sub i be the time to failure of the (i)th component. Let R(t) be the reliability of the system at time t and R*(t) be the reliability when the components are independent. It is desired to find physically meaningful conditions such that R*(t) is a lower bound of R(t) for all t.
