A TWO UNIT PARALLEL LOAD SHARING SYSTEM WITH ADMINISTRATIVE DELAY IN REPAIR
The paper deals with the stochastic analysis of a two non-identical unit parallel system model assuming that an administrative delay occurs in getting the repairman available with the system whenever needed. Upon failure of a unit, the other operating unit shares the load of previous one. The failure time distributions of the units are assumed to be exponential whereas the repair time distributions of the failed units and administrative delay time distribution are taken general having different c.d.f.’s. By using regenerative point technique, various performance measures of system effectiveness have been obtained.
