The system state consists of the states of components, where the working component is 1 and failed component is 0. Thus, in the beginning, the system state is represented as a vector of ones with size n. The component fails one at a time and the sequences are called as paths. Accordingly, at the system failure event (the last step), the system state can be represented as a vector with size n, where there is at least k consecutive zeros (failed components), which are components in the minimal cut sets.

1 Consecutive-k-Out-of-n: F Systems A system which fails if and only at least k of the n components fail is called a kout-of-n: F system. A series and parallel systems are special case of this system, where the series system is a 1-out-of-n: F system and the parallel system is an nout-of-n: F system. Another developed structure of this system is consecutive-kout-of-n: F system. A consecutive-k-out-of-n: F system is a system which fails if and only if at least k consecutive components fail among n components.
