Abstract: Weighted voting systems are widely used in many practical fields such as target detection, human organization, pattern recognition, etc. In this paper, a new model for weighted voting systems with continuous state inputs is formulated. We derive the analytical expression for the reliability of the entire system under certain distribution assumptions. A more general Monte Carlo algorithm is also given to numerically analyze the model and evaluate the reliability. This paper further proposes a reliability optimization problem of weighted voting systems under cost constraints. A genetic algorithm is introduced and applied as the optimization technique for the model formulated. A numerical example is then presented to illustrate the ideas. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
