	%X the reliability analysis of the medical equipments can
help to increase the availability and the efficiency of the systems. In
this manuscript we present a simple method of decomposition that
could be easily applied on the complex medical systems. Using this
method we can easily calculate the effect of the subsystems or
components on the reliability of the overall system. Furthermore, to
investigate the effect of subsystems or components on system
performance, we perform a numerical study varying every time the
worst reliability of subsystem or component with another which has
higher reliability. It can also be useful to engineers and designers of
medical equipment, who wishes to optimize the complex systems.
