Maintenance of Light Standards , a Case-Study

  title={Maintenance of Light Standards , a Case-Study},
  author={Rommert Dekker and Jos van der Meer and Raymond Ph. Plasmeijer and Ralph E. Wildeman},
This paper discusses several strategies for the maintenance of light standards, where each light standard consists of n independent and identical lamps screwed on a chandelier. The lamps are subject to stochastic failures, and must be correctively replaced if the number of failed lamps reaches a prespecified number m; a norm that is set by the local management to guarantee a minimum luminance. As lamps have an increasing failure rate, and there is a fixed cost of hoisting the chandelier, we… CONTINUE READING
