In the paper the authors consider one of the most basic stochastic models in reliability theory--namely the on-off process generated by failures and repairs of components in a series system.

Furthermore, only failed components are repaired andor replaced repair or replacement takes a random time. Repaired components are assumed to function like new components. Author
