This paper analyze a parallel system consisted of n dependent components with lifetimes follow Weibull distribution. FGM Copula in multivariate case is used to generate the reliability function of the original system. Reduction method is introduced to improve system reliability. Other methods of hot, cold and warm duplication are established to improve system reliability. An application using real time data is introduced to show the results and compare between different improvement methods.
