Then, the life data analysis is performed, which allows to obtain the given reliability indicators and predict the future returns of the products and services. The paper consists of some useful reliability measures, that may be used in the assessment of reliability for the supply system. Used reliability indicators may be the basis for the development of the preventive tasks to reduce the future returns. The presented approach for reliability assessment of supply system discloses its applicability. Forecasting the future returns and determining the selected reliability measures may be applied in any supply system.
