A simplified method for determining the numeric reliability of a complex network is presented. Many methods developed for systems with specific configuration require lengthy transformation or reduction procedure. The reliability of multibridge complex systems with independent components can be evaluated by using conditional probabilities for reliability of the connecting components between the intermediate vertices. An algorithm (COMPLEX) is designed for the reliability computation of multibridge network systems, and a Fortran program is given based on this algorithm.
