In our earlier work, we introduced a state-based approach for the diagnosis of repeatedly occurring failures in discrete event systems (DESs). Since temporal logic provides a simpler way of specifying system properties; in this paper, a temporal-logic-based approach for diagnosing the occurrence of a repeated number of failures is developed. Linear-time temporal-logic (LTL) formulae are used to represent the specifications of DESs. Notions of prediagnosability for failures and diagnosability for repeated failures are introduced in the setting of temporal logic. A polynomial algorithm for the test of prediagnosability for failures is provided. The diagnosis problem for repeated failures in the temporal-logic setting is reduced to one in a state-based setting, and so the prior results of a state-based repeated failure diagnosis can be applied. Finally, a simple example is given for illustration. Note to Practitioners-Certain failures in a system are repeatable, such as routing errors in a manufacturing system. A theory for the diagnosis of such failures was presented in an earlier work of Jiang et al. The present paper uses temporal logic to specify such failures. It turns out that repeatable failures can be specified as violations of invariant properties (i.e., properties that must always hold). Given an invariant property that the system must always satisfy, an algorithm is presented to refine the system model and label those states of the refined system where the property is violated. The problem of repeated diagnosis then requires determining, within a bounded delay, each time a "failure-state" is visited. For this analysis, the existing theory developed by Jiang et al. is used.
