With a network failure probability of about two in a million, the CMC with 105 samples cannot estimate r accurately, while the CMC with IS (CMC-IS) delivers a much better result. This simple example demonstrates how Importance Sampling can help improve estimate accuracy. Table 1. 22e-00 However, the question of how we should tilt the parameters still remains open and that is where the CE technique can help.

Later, Ravi et al. (1997) developed an improved version of non-equilibrium simulated annealing called INESA and applied it to solve a variety of reliability optimization problems. Further, Ravi et al. (2000) first formulated various complex system reliability optimization problems with single and multi objectives as fuzzy global optimization problems. They also developed and applied the non-combinatorial version of another meta-heuristic viz. threshold accepting to solve these problems. Threshold accepting (Dueck and Sheurer, 1990) is a faster variation of the simulated annealing and often leads to superior optimal solutions than does the simulated annealing.
