The man-powerplant reliability interface is discussed with emphasis on manned vs automatic sensing and control. Judgment and recognition of powerplant performance and the ability to correct abnormal conditions with man included in redundant-component systems results in higher system reliability. An expression for a man-plus-automatic-redundant-component subsystem is presented that gives the subsystem reliability vs the reliability of its parts.
