Preventive maintenance in a 1-out-of-n system: the uptime, downtime and costs
In repairable systems with redundancy, failed units can be replaced by spare units in order to reduce the system downtime. The failed units are sent to a repair shop or manufacturer for corrective maintenance and subsequently are returned for re-use. In this paper we consider a 1 out of n system with cold standby and we assume that repaired units are "as good as new".
