parallel system

a means of improving the RELIABILITY of a product or machine by incorporating two or more components in the product or machine to operate in parallel, so that if one of the components fails, the product or machine will still continue to operate. Parallel systems are incorporated within products such as aircraft, where the importance of safety considerations warrants the extra cost of additional components.
