A new reliability importance measure for
components in a system, that we call Representativeness
measure, is introduced. It evaluates to which extent the
performance of a component is representative of the
performance of the whole system. Its relationship with
Birnbaum’s measure is analyzed, and the ranking of
components given by both measures are compared. These
rankings happen to be equal when all components have the
same reliability but different in general. In contrast with
Birnbaum’s, the Representativeness reliability importance
measure of a component does depend on its reliability.
