A Reliability Block Diagram (RBD) performs the system reliability and availability analyses on
large and complex systems using block diagrams to show network relationships. The structure of the
reliability block diagram defines the logical interaction of failures within a system that are required to
sustain system operation.
The rational course of a RBD stems from an input node located at the left side of the diagram. The
input node flows to arrangements of series or parallel blocks that conclude to the output node at the
right side of the diagram. A diagram should only contain one input and one output node.
The RBD system is connected by a parallel or series configuration.
A parallel connection is used to show redundancy and is joined by multiple links or paths from the
Start Node to the End Node.
