In the reliability area, the concept of the residual lifetime of a non repairable system is very important and its property has been intensively studied. In this article, we define the “residual failure process” for a repairable system and study its stochastic properties thoroughly. The detailed discussions are given when the corresponding failure process is a renewal process. An illustrative example is also discussed.
