Subject and Keywords:
The paper discusses a problem of reliable performance of production processes. Reliability analyses of production systems regard considering many different factors and requirements. As a result, basic definitions connected with production system/process have been defined. Later, there has been also presented the literature review in reliability engineering, what gives the possibility to present a comparison analysis of known reliability models for production systems performance. Based on the presented literature summary, the multidimensional definition of production process reliability is developed with short example of its implementation possibilities. The work ends up with summary and directions for further research.
