A simple and efficient technique for solving integer-programming problems that normally arise in system-reliability design is introduced. It quickly solves even a very large system problem. It consists of a systematic search near the boundary of constraints and involves functional evaluations only. It can handle system-reliability design problems of any type in which the decision variables are restricted to integer values. Several illustrative examples are given to substantiate these assertions
