Abstract.A large-scale compound system can be decomposed into a series of multi-level subsystems, and each subsystem can be decomposed into a series of multi-level subsystems again, until each bottom subsystem needs not to be decomposed. Considering each subsystem's construction cost as coordination parameters of systems from up to down, each subsystem's reliability and its derivative related to construction cost as decomposition parameters of systems from down to up, a decomposition-coordination algorithm for solving reliability optimization models of large-scale compound engineering systems is given.
