This article is mainly to utilize the flow network analysis to calculate the system reliability, so as to assess the service quality of electronic transactions conducted by commercial banks. Banks rely on telecommunication networks leased from telecommunication companies for electronic transaction services. The telecommunication company offers the steady telecommunication network, which is one of the key factors of influencing the electronic transaction service of the bank. In this article, one of the top three banks in Taiwan is taken for case study. The multi-state flow network and the recursive sum of disjoint product algorithm are used to calculate the system reliability, and explore its relationship with the remote branches demand. The use of multi-state flow network for system reliability analysis to assess the service quality of commercial banks electronic transactions can make the important reference indicator of network structure of serving for planning the commercial bank in the future.
