We consider a discrete event system controlled by a decentralized supervisor consisting of n local supervisors. Given a nonempty and closed language as the upper bound specification, we consider a problem to synthesize a reliable decentralized supervisor such that the closed-loop behavior is still legal under possible failures of any less than or equal to n-k (1 k n) local supervisors. We synthesize two such reliable decentralized supervisors. One is synthesized based on a suitably defined normal sublanguage. The other is the fully decentralized supervisor induced by a suitably defined centralized supervisor. We then show that the generated languages under the control actions of these two decentralized supervisors are incomparable.
