Abstract


ENGLISH ABSTRACT: It is reasonable to expect that preparation time is needed to ready a repair facility before a repair can be carried out. A three-unit system with a `preparation time for the repair facility is studied in this paper. The steady-state availability of such a system is obtained. The asymptotic confidence limits of the steady state availability are obtained numerically.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Redelikerwys kan verwag word dat n herstelproses voorafgegaan word deur n voorbereidingsproses voordat herstel n aanvang kan neem. n Sisteem wat bestaan uit drie eenhede waar n sodanige voorbereidingsproses voor herstelwerk moet plaasvind word ondersoek. Die gestadigde stelselbeskikbaarheid met asimptotiese vertrouegrense word numeries blootgestel.
