Following the proposal of Tanaka, Kumamoto and Inoue (1989), Monte Carlo methods are constructed based on less prior information, and yield estimators with smaller standard deviation. The first application derives a variant of the sequential destruction method. The second application obtains the traditional importance sampling Monte Carlo method for static reliability problems, starting with a dynamic reliability problem; a class of systems is given, where standard-deviation reduction can be guaranteed before any Monte Carlo trials
