Abstract
The paper presents a method of modeling and analysis of fault-tolerant (FT) electronic systems by means of a novel statistical model checking (SMC) approach available in the UPPAAL SMC tool. The method can be seen as an alternative to classical analytic approaches based on instruments such as fault-tree or Markov reliability models of the above-specified systems. Main goal of the paper is to show that - taking the advantage of SMC - the reliability analysis of systems can be facilitated even for adverse conditions such as inconstant failure (hazard) rate of inner system components. In the paper, basic terms and principles related to modeling and analysis of FT systems are summarized, followed by a short introduction to the UPPAAL SMC tool, its practical applicability to analysis and modeling of basic FT systems and evaluation of the results achieved on basis of the tool.
