The problem of finding optimal replacement strategies for certain classes of failure systems is considered. These systems can be repaired upon failure, but are stochastically deteriorating, i.e., the lengths of the operating intervals decrease in some sense, whereas the durations of the repairs increase. For several models of this type optimal replacement strategies are derived under natural assumptions on the reward and the cost structure. This study deals with the problem of optimal… 
An optimal age-replacement policy for a simple repairable system with delayed repair
ABSTRACT In this article, a simple repairable system (i.e., a repairable system consisting of one component and one repairman) with delayed repair is studied. Assume that the system after repair is
Optimal periodic preventive repair and replacement policy assuming geometric process repair
The objective of this paper is to determine an optimal bivariate replacement policy such that the average cost rate (i.e., the long-run average cost per unit time) is minimized.

Optimal number of minimal repairs before replacement of a deteriorating system with inspections
In this study, a generalised replacement model for a deteriorating system with failures that could only be detected through inspection work is proposed, and the expected net cost rate is obtained.
An optimal replacement policy for repairable cold standby system with priority in use
A cold standby repairable system consisting of two nonidentical components and one repairman is studied and an optimal replacement policy N* is determined numerically so that the long-run average cost per unit time of the system is minimized.

In this paper we generalize the minimal repair replacement model introduced by Barlow and Hunter (1960). We assume that there is available information about the underlying condition of the system,
A General Failure Model: Optimal Replacement with State Dependent Replacement and Failure Costs
There exists an optimal replacement rule, and that it is a threshold rule for the process γt = dct/dt + Ktrt, which means that there exists a* < ∞, such that an optimal replacements rule is to replace at the time when the process rt assumed to be nondecreasing reaches the level a*, or if failure occurs before this, to replacement at failure.

In this note, we study a new repair replacement model for a deteriorating system, in which the successive survival times of the system form a geometric process and are stochastically non-increasing,
In this paper, we develop general repair models for a repairable system by using the idea of the virtual age process of the system. If the system has the virtual age V, _ = y immediately after the (n

Abstract : The failure process studied in this paper models the following maintained system setting. A piece of equipment is put in operation at time t=0. Each time it fails, a maintenance action is
