Abstract

The paper presents a comparative analysis between the profits of two reliability models of a plant, manufacturing electrical cables. Model-I is based on operating the plant for 24 hours without resting machines during summer season, whereas, Model-II is based on 16 hours of operation followed by 8 hours of rest period during winter season. Specific season based operational strategies being adopted to address the demand based production of the cables. Real maintenance data are used for estimating the optimized reliability indices and comparison of profits. Semi-Markov processes and regenerative point techniques are used to carry out the analysis. Essential graphs are plotted to demonstrate the results.
