Abstract

We discuss models of preventive maintenance (PM) under different assumptions on the failure/repair processes. The main emphasis is on the PM modeling under the Brown-Proschan model for minimal/perfect repairs. We also present the generalization of this model for the failure/repair process governed by the generalized Polya process. Some comparisons with conventional PM models are discussed (Nonhomogeneous Poisson process, renewal process, and geometric process of failure/repairs). Several practical examples are considered.
