In many contemporary complex systems, the significance of function system testing is increasing. In two recent decades, a central role of multi-function system testing has been pointed out in many studies i.e., combinations of system functions can lead to general system faults. This situation is based on integration (fusion) of local faults into a general system faults. Here a local fault corresponds to a system unit/components and each local fault is a result of a certain system function.
