A minimal cut (MC) can be modeled as a Markov process (Chapter 4) and embedded into the MC approach (Chapter 3). The combination of both methods is denoted as the Markov minimal cut (MMC) approach, with which stochastic dependencies between components can be taken into account. S-dependencies can have a decisive impact on system dependability of subsystems, even producing a system crash. The term s-dependency is defined for strongly connected Markov processes (Definition 4.6) in the steady state (Definition 4.7). A method is proposed to evaluate the severity of s-dependency and its impact on system dependability.
