Many real systems are composed of multi-state components with different performance levels and several failure modes. These affect the whole system's performance.
Most books on reliability theory cover binary models that allow a system only to function perfectly or fail completely.
"The Universal Generating Function in Reliability Analysis and Optimization" is the first book that gives a comprehensive description of the universal generating function technique and its applications in binary and multi-state system reliability analysis.
