Abstract:

Specific decision rules for the spare parts allocation procedure for a system composed of two failure prone items are formulated and analysed. It is considered desirable to have the system operate successfully during a mission when space for only one spare is available. The decision rules formulated consider the use of operational data to decide where a spare is best placed. These rules have been numerically evaluated for several specific exponential time to failure distributions and tables associated with this evaluation are included. Author
