Fault tolerance strategies in an existing FMS installation
Journal article, 1993
This paper describes a case study of an FMS installation in which fault tolerance is modelled through the use of a description model called the General Recursive System (GRS). The GRS makes it possible to study different system configuration are described, called Hardware Configuration, Mission Configuration and Work Configuration. Fault tolerance, i.e. ways to overcome erroneous situations in the FMS installation, is obtained by choosing alternative system configurations. Alternative ways to describe different fault tolerance strategies within the FMS installation are illustrated through examples.
