      Coherent systems are very important in reliability, survival analysis and other life sciences. In this paper, we consider the number of failed components in an (n-k+1)-out-of-n system, given that at least m components have failed before time t, and the system is still working at time t. First the reliability and several stochastic properties are obtained. Furthermore, we extend the results to general coherent systems with absolutely continuous and exchangeable components.
