Preventive maintenance with imperfect repairs of a system with redundant objects
- Józef Okulewicz,

An object ability to realise tasks may be restored by repairing only failed components. This is called imperfect repair as the object is not as good as new after such a repair. Preventive replacement is an example of imperfect repair as well. The advantage of such maintenance is that it enables controlling a reliability level of a system. Sets of objects’ components which should be replaced are derived on a basis of statistical diagnosing with use of data about components failures. The acceptable level of a failure risk while executing transportation tasks has been taken as a criterion of choosing elements to be replaced. An algorithm of selecting components for preventive replacement has been developed. It was shown that a level of a system reliability can be controlled by changing an order of a quantile function in coordination and a number of redundant objects. A computer simulation model of the system was used to illustrate derived dependencies.
