The reliability of complex technical objects plays an increasingly important role in the age of high speeds and implementation of complex science-intensive technologies in all areas of human activity. The article describes one of the ways to increase products uptime due to the combined redundancy with recovery, using elements of artificial intelligence. We identified and investigated its reliability function as well. Moreover, we assessed its advantages and disadvantages and found the partial redundancy the most advantageous under assumption that the switch operates in an automatic mode. We took into account the existing differences in technical parameters and the failure flow rates. The paper presents the system of equations describing the evolution of the stochastic process and its solution, followed by analysis of the obtained results, which demonstrate the advantages of the combined redundancy with recovery. Thus, the proposed mathematical apparatus allows for analysis of the products uptime and the necessity for a more complex system design.
