Lim et al. (Commun. Statist. Theory Meth. 27 (4) (1998) 965) proposed the Bayesian imperfect repair model, in which a failed system is perfectly repaired with probability P and is minimally repaired with probability 1-P, where P is not fixed but a random variable with a prior distribution Π(p). In this note, the steady state availability of the model is derived and the measure is obtained for several particular prior distribution functions.
