An Optimal Replacement Problem for a production system using Preventive Maintenance model

Dr. B. Venkata Ramudu

Abstract :

This paper studies a replacement model for a repairable system with preventive maintenance in which the interval of preventive repair is fixed and preventive repair is ‘as good as new’. While, the failure repair is alpha series process repair. The replacement policy N is the number of failures of the system, The objective function is minimizing cost efficiency ( i.e the lon–run average cost rate per unit working time). In this model he proved that the optimal policy with preventive repair is better than the policy without preventive maintenance (PM). The optimal replacement policy N* can be found both under PM and without PM such that the average cost rate is minimum. Finally, numerical results are given to highlights the theoretical results.
