Abstract Goal-oriented (GO) methodology is a successoriented method for system reliability analysis based on modeling the normal operating sequence of a system and all possible system states. Recently, GO method has been applied in reliability and safety analysis of a number of systems, spanning defense, transportation, and power systems. This paper provides a brief review of the GO method, first, by providing its development history and its engineering applications. Then, the theory of GO method is expounded. Finally, the future directions are discussed.
