Abstract

The paper presents a reliability analysis of a single machine
subsystem of a cable plant. Seven years maintenance data of a
cable plant have been collected. Six types of maintenance
practices noted for the subsystem: electrical repair, electronic
repair, mechanical repair, thermal repair, minor preventive
maintenances and major scheduled preventive maintenances.
The subsystem is repaired on normal failures and minor
preventive maintenances are performed at random whereas the
major preventive maintenances are carried out on scheduled
basis. Subsystem is analyzed using semi Markov process and
regenerative point technique. Reliability indices of interest
such as mean time to subsystem failure, availability of the
subsystem, expected busy period of the repairman and
expected number of subsystem repairs, are obtained.
Simulated results are shown through necessary graphs.
