Reliability technology using GO methodology: A review

Journal Article

Abstract Goal‐oriented (GO) methodology is a graphic inductive method mapping the system structure, its function constitute, characteristics, and working principle visually based on decision tree. Recently, the studies on reliability technologies for GO method of complex systems have been gotten a lot of attention by scholars because of the obvious advantages of modeling and analysis power. Indeed, the GO method has been applied in reliability and safety analysis of various areas, such as transportation and power systems, to prove its value. Thus, this paper provides a brief review of the GO method from aspects of providing its development history and its engineering applications and expounding its development of the theory of the GO method. At last, the future directions of GO method are discussed.
