A fundamental factor in relevant applications is the predictability of the life cycle of a coherent system consisting of more than one component. In this context, we examine how entropy can be applied to evaluate the degree of predictability. In particular, in order to calculate the Tsallis entropy of the past life, we consider a scenario in which all components of the system fail at a given time t and use the system signature to calculate the Tsallis entropy of the past life. We examine a number of analytical results, e.g., expressions, thresholds and orders for the measure at issue in our study. The results may provide insights into the predictability of a coherent system’s life cycle.
