Reliability Analysis of a Repairable C (2, 3; G ) System with Repair Priority and one is"as good as new"

Yuan-yuan LI, Xian-yun MENG, Shou-zhu WANG, Tian-chong ZHOU


In this paper, we discuss a repairable linear C (2, 3; G) system. One repairman carries out the maintenance of the system. It is assumed that the working time and the repair time of each component in the system are both exponentially distributed and only one component after repair is as good as new. Each component is classified as either a key component or an ordinary one according to its priority role to the system’s repair. We apply the geometric process, supplementary variable technique and generalized Markov process to study a repairable linear C (2, 3; G) system. We obtain Laplace transforms of some reliability indices such as availability and reliability.

Key words: repairable system; generalized Markov process; key component; geometric process
