I. Antonopoulou and S. Papastavridis (1987) published an algorithm for computing the reliability of a circular consecutive-k-out-of-n:F system which claimed O (kn) time. J.S. Wu and R.J. Chen (1993) correctly pointed out that the algorithm achieved only O(kn2) time. The present study shows that the algorithm can be implemented for O(kn) time
