Toshio Nakagawa Meijo University (Received January 31, 1981; Revised June 9, 1981) This paper summarizes the results of the basic model of Makabe and Morimura, in which a unit is replaced at k-th failure. The two generalized models are considered: A) A unit has two types of failures and is replaced at type 2 failure or k-th type 1 failure. B) A system has two types of units and is replaced at unit 2 failure or k-th unit 1 failure. The expected cost rates for each model are obtained, using the… CONTINUE READING
