Abstract : When developing multicomputer computer systems (CS), the possibility must be considered that the computer elements and other CS elements will fail due to both their insufficient reliability, and unfavorable external effects (overheatings, radiation, mechanical damages, and so on). It is desirable that the CS not only maintain their working order under these conditions, but that they should continue a problem solving process interrupted by a failure; and, moreover, that the working order restoration time should be sufficiently small. Two methods which mutually complement one another are examined in order to facilitate the given problem's solution.
