A model for the analysis of systems subject to common-cause failures is proposed. The system consists of a finite number of components that are subject to: (1) statistically independent failures, and (2) external failure causes (they need not be mutually statistically independent) for groups of components. Applications to fault-tree analysis and network reliability problems are discussed
