A circular consecutively-connected system with multistate components (CCCSMC) consists of a set of a components ei, i∈[1,n] arranged in a circle. The ei is followed by e i+1, i∈[1,n-1]; en is followed by e1 . The ei can be in 1 of the states 0,…,ki . If ei is in state k∈[0,ki], then its range is k (the k components following ei are within its range). The system is functioning if and only if, for every component e j, j∈[1,n] there is an ei such that ej is within the range of ei. The paper gives a recursive algorithm for determining the CCCSMC reliability
