In this paper we show mutual relationships between a multi-state system and a family of binary state systems and show some relationships among minimal state vectors of the systems, which give us how to construct the structure function of the multi-state system by using the structure functions of the binary state systems. But the state spaces of multi-state systems are assumed to be totally ordered set, because of simplicity for our first examination about the transformation.
