In the paper the semi-Markov process is used to construct a general model of a complex technical system operation. Parameters of this model are defined and the methods of their statistical identification are proposed. Using this model and methods, the operation process of a port oil transportation system is described, its parameters are statistically identified and its main characteristics are determined. Further, the joint model linking the system operation process and the system reliability is defined and applied to the reliability evaluation of the port oil transportation system in variable operating conditions.
