Component Based Software systems (CBSSs) are being widely used because of their various advantages. Reliability of these systems is an important issue to be focused. The approaches which have been proposed so far, does not consider that the failure of one component depend on another and also assume that each failure affects equally to the overall system while practically it is not so. The failure of one component depends on other and also each kind of failure have their different impacts on overall system. This paper presents a new and enhanced approach for Reliability analysis of CBSSs, that will give more accurate reliability prediction than the approaches being proposed so far by taking into account the facts that the component failure affects other components as well and also that the different failure have their different impact on overall system.
