I. INTRODUCTION The value R(t ) represents the estimated reliability due to the Many models of reliability of biometric systems are applicable only to specific parts or components of that same system. For fact that the number of tasks n(t) is final. Therefore, the actual more complex considerations must be taken into account reliability R(t) is obtained when the number of tasks n(t) tends models based on Markov processes that consider the reliability to infinity. of the system as a whole, which includes components of the system. In this paper the approach to restoring the functions of R(t ) lim R t a biometric system that had failure at some of its components is n ( t ) (2) elaborated. The basic model is an additive model which R(t) =1–F(t)=P(T>t) (3) assumes a serial dependence between the components  (Xie & Wohlin). Where the R ( t ) 1indicates the reliability function. Thus F ( t ) UML is also becoming standard in the process of system can be called non reliability function. Approximate form of the design so the manufacture of component systems greatly function F ( t ), is shown in Figure 1. It is a continuous and benefits from the UML view. The authors introduce the monotonically increasing function: concept of UML modelling in the process of restoring function analysis of biometric systems. The paper defines the conceptual F(0)=0 class diagram in UML, which provides a framework for F ( t ) →1, when t → ∞ analyzing the function recovery of biometric systems. Density failure function is marked with F( t ), and from II.

BIOMETRIC SYSTEM RECOVERY FUNCTION Intensity recovery function is conditional probability density Term recovery consider biometric system as a system that is function of the end of the recovery in time t, provided that recovery maintained after a long period of use or recovered after failure of not complete until that moment t, we have: is particular components. Biometric system components, after the failure, are maintained or exchanged and then continue to be part of the system. When considering the reliability problems of generic G(t ) F1 (t ) f1 (t ) biometric system along with a random event that includes the (t ) (14) G (t ) G (t ) G (t ) appearance of failure within the system, it is necessary to consider other random event and that is recovery the system after failure. To this event corresponds a new random variable that indicates t t dG (t ) (t )dt G (t ) (15) the time of recovery. As a characteristic of random variable 0 0 indicators similar to those being considered for the analysis of time t without failure are used. ln G (t ) t0 (t )dt (16) 0 t A.
