STOCHASTIC ANALYSIS OF A TWO-UNIT PARALLEL SYSTEM WITH PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
This paper presents the stochastic analysis of a two unit parallel system model with the concept of correlation between time to preventive maintenance and preventive maintenance time. The joint distribution of time to preventive maintenance and preventive maintenance time is taken bivariate exponential. Using regenerative point technique, various measures of system effectiveness useful to system managers are obtained. For a more concrete study of the system graphical behaviour of MTSF and profit function have also been studied.
