This paper considers a repairable system with a repairman, who can take multiple vacations. If the system fails and the repairman is on vacation, it will wait for repair until the repairman is available. Assume that the system cannot be repaired ‘‘as good as new’’ after failures. Under these assumptions, using the geometric process and the supplementary variable technique, some important reliability indexes are derived, such as the system reliability, availability, rate of occurrence of… CONTINUE READING
