Abstract : The problem of diagnosis of systems when the test outcomes are multivalued was considered earlier. However, a too strong sufficient condition was specified there for the diagnosability of such a system, which was shown not to be a necessary one. Necessary and sufficient conditions for the diagnosability of a system under multivalued test outcomes have been presented in this paper which is applicable to any arbitrary system. (Author)
