The article proposes a structural-functional model of a data storage system based on solid-state drives, implementing deduplication technology to optimize the use of disk space. The concept is based on systems approach. The functioning model is presented in the form of interaction between the control subject (the system administrator) and the control object (the storage system). The system is exposed to external stream of requests from user applications over the Internet. The output parameters of the system include such performance indicators as storage capacity, storage time, storage cost, performance and reliability. The data storage system is presented in the form of four main integrated components, sequentially connected with each other: Network Service; deduplication system based on VDO technology; write management system, software RAID Control System; array of SSD drives. While the flow of requests passes through the system, the delay at each component is determined by the appropriate mathematical model. Such a structural and functional representation of the system allows applying the methods of statistical modeling and queuing theory to its analysis. The use of the proposed model will allow to design a data storage system of the given volume and service life with a minimum storage cost for a consumer with given performance and reliability indicators.

The authors consider the issue of assessing partial failure in the technical system from the standpoint of parametric reliability. Evaluation of failure behavior is carried out according to such parameters as time between hours to failure and the achievement of goals, risks. Under the risk in this paper refers to the likelihood of a subsequent failure (full or partial) or the transition occurred in full. The authors propose to expand the range of parameters that characterize hitting a failure state by adding characteristics of possible degradation processes and values of destructive environmental factors in the predicted period of continued operation of the object under study. Also, special attention is paid to the fact that the likelihood of partial failure is influenced by factors that can be divided into external and internal, while the internal ones may depend on external ones. Ishikawa diagram shows the dependence of the rate of degradation of the PR on various factors.

Innovative organizations have begun to use fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for healthcare delivery since they can fly faster and provide a proper solution in locations with difficult access or unsafe to human life. Moreover, they assure greater utility and better cost effectiveness than manned aircraft. However, the wind affects both the longitudinal and the lateral variables of the fixed-wing UAV contributing to its nonlinear and due to such external disturbances the UAV can fail its mission. Therefore, this review paper discusses on effects of wind disturbances on navigation of fixed-wing UAV. Full nonlinear equations of motion by including the effects of the wind on the fixed-wing UAV performance are developed. Also an overview of different approaches is presented.

The quantitative methods of risk assessment of technological processes of manufacture and the analysis of level of deficiency of products in the conditions of nondeterministic stochastic parameters are considered. The properties defining reliability of process are its controllability, stability and reproducibility. The main methodical device by assessment and the analysis of these properties are provisions of standards on statistical methods of quality control. In the analysis and assessment of risk it is necessary to consider that borders of a tolerance zone of parameters of products and control limits of reliability of technological processes of its production are always considered as acceptable (admissible) risk levels. Overcoming these levels is considered a negative consequence in the form of increase in level of deficiency of products and decrease in accuracy of technological processes of its production. Technical solutions are always bound to risk as it is never impossible to be sure of the end estimated result in advance. To check whether this risk was justified, it is possible always only after realization of technical solution and approach of an undesirable event. Therefore technical activity in principle can't be completely free from any risk, and it is always necessary to go on necessary and justified risk consciously.

The model of the occurrence of failures as a result of aging of insulation materials of power cable lines is considered. It is shown that the residual life depends on the ratio of the safety margin and the ultimate strength of the materials used. A simulation of the resource actuation processes was carried out using a mathematical model of the insulation state that relates the time and probability of its trouble-free operation with certain parameters of it. The model allows to predict the state of the insulation and the service life of the power cable lines.

In the article, the authors present the results of studies related to the effect of partial failures (PF) on the reliability characteristics of the system, determined through the probability of continuous operation over the interregional period under the conditions of continued operation after PF. The computational model is based on the assumption that the process of continuing to function after a spacecraft can be considered as redundancy by substitution, when the reserve appears capable of performing post-failure functions, but with some change in the reliability characteristics. The entire work interval is divided into separate sections inside, which the technical system operates with new reliability characteristics, with the sequential occurrence of several PF. A model with an exponential law of distribution of probabilities of partial failures is considered. It is believed that testing the device of the entire interregional period without a complete failure can be characterized as the product of the probabilities of the absence of a complete failure on the considered time interval, the absence of the occurrence of destructive external influences exceeding the critical values, the error-free processing of the program by the expert system and the absence of errors in the operator's actions. The results of the illustrative calculation are presented and conclusions are made.

An important aspect in the creation of information and training systems for training and advanced training of technological personnel of industrial enterprises is the development and implementation of mathematical models of the studied technological processes at the stage of forming algorithmic and software of such systems. The considered information and training system is associated with the blending and casting of aluminum alloys of various grades. The system contains the necessary amount of theoretical information that describes the basic principles of aluminum production using the most well-known technological operations aimed at the formation of the required metal alloys with a given chemical composition. The information-training system is based on a mathematical model of the technological process, in the development and description of which both the principles of informational similarity and the physicochemical laws are used using experimental-statistical modeling methods. The structure of the information and training system consists of structural units that interact logically with each other, which allow the formation and solving of various technological problems of melting aluminum melting in smelting furnaces. Each unit has a certain meaning and performs the required amount of load. The system consists of seven important and weighty structural units. The interactions of the studied production object with the control actions and external disturbances make it possible to form the initial parameters of the task, which in turn become the basis for user interaction with the training system. The user interface of the system allows visualizing the aspects of technological change that are taking place and storing the student’s corrective actions for further analysis in the computer’s memory. If necessary, the system can provide the user with the opportunity to use the potential of an interactive assistant, in the event that he is difficult or unable to determine the weight of the next corrective adjustment. The interactive assistant based on the current parameters of the technological problem is able to determine and suggest to the user the use of the most optimal control action for the best solution of the problem. Thus, when introducing these principles of training, the system should show its effectiveness by reducing the final cost of the finished metal products, by reducing errors in technological operations and empirical calculations of the masses of the components used, increasing its consumer qualities.

This article discusses the use of regression analysis in violation of the assumption of the normal distribution of observations. The analysis of the following work illustrated that the theoretical distribution of observations may differ significantly from practical research if normal law is rejected. To solve this problem, which is one of the central ones in statistical analysis, stable estimation methods were studied and applied. Based on the results obtained, a software product was developed that implements this statistical method.

The work is based on experimental data obtained during the pilot survey of students of DSTU at the end of 2018. Cognitive components of perception of propaganda were revealed by direct survey, students were asked to characterize the fairness of the policy pursued by the state and the reliability of both Pro-government and opposition political propaganda in General. At the same time, domestic and foreign policies were considered separately. The correlation analysis carried out on these six indicators showed their significant mutual influence. To identify the integral characteristics behind this correlation, we used the method of hierarchy analysis, previously proposed by us such a variety as hierarchical factor analysis. It was found that at the second level, the primary six indicators are reduced to two factors, the indices of perception of missile defense and illegal propaganda. At the third level, the latter two form an integral factor characterizing the cognitive component as a whole. For each level, the priorities of the underlying indicators relative to the upper one are calculated, and the matrices of paired comparisons, both primary characteristics and intermediate ones, are restored. In addition to the internal structure indicators, the paper presents external ones, such as the distribution of the obtained factors of the second and third levels by respondents.

This study describes the method of narrative management of the socio-economic system. The stages of narrative management and the structure of the business process are presented, as well as the distribution of responsibilities among the participants of the management process. The system of support of narrative management in the socio-economic system is proposed, the architecture of the software package is described. The presented system is implemented. An example of a scenario for managing a socio-economic system using the developed software package is given. The process of managing urban passenger transport is considered as an example. Thus, the study has implemented an approach that allows preserving the observability and manageability of the system and monitoring the process of managing the system, taking into account subject-object interaction. At the same time, the choice of actions to organize management and responsibility for the actions of the participants in the process lies with the participants themselves. The results of actions in the system that may lead to loss of manageability and impossibility of achieving the general goal (destruction of the system) are compensated by modifying the manage strategy without losing the structural coherence of the goal space. This ensures the very existence of the system in its environment.
