Stochastic Analysis of Dis-Similar Standby System with Discrete Failure, Inspection and Replacement Policy



The device named autoclave used in pharma industries has been studied in this paper. This study provides the discussion how to obtain the reliability testing strategy of two dis-similar parallel units. The system is considered to be in operative condition if at least one out of two is in operative state. A single repair facility is available for repairing both kinds of failed units. In addition to repair mechanism, inspection policy has also been introduced for failed automatic unit. But the manual one does not require any such supervision facilty. Various essential measures of system effectiveness such as mean time to system failure (MTSF), steady state availability, busy period of supervisor and repairman are examined probabilistically by using geometric distribution and regenerative point techniques. A graph has been plotted to represent the behaviour of profit function and MTSF with respect to different failure and repair rate.
