The potential of the Monte Carlo method as a common place tool for a broad range of reliability and logistic problems is discussed. The mathematical features of the method are illustrated and biasing methods aimed at reducing the cost of the calculation are described. These methods combine efficiency with simplicity of implementation in multipurpose computer codes. A multipurpose computer code package developed on the basis of the Monte Carlo method is described.
