This paper presents a method to find the optimum maintenance policy for a component. Random failures and failures due to deterioration are considered. Using Markov processes, the state probabilities are calculated and the optimal value of the mean time to preventive maintenance is determined by maximizing the availability of single component with respect to(More)
The use of a network of workstations as a single unit for speeding up computationally intensive applications is becoming a cost-eflective altemative to traditional parallel computers. In this paper, we present the implementation of an application-driven parallel platform for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) on this computing environment. The(More)
