This paper presents a general method to determine probabilities of failure of any fixed subset of coherent system components under various conditions. The method uses a known reliability structure of the system and the known joint probability distribution of its component times-to-failure. This method is universal and can be applied in many cases. Nevertheless, for large systems it is troublesome. In practice a problem is solved using a numerical program.
