Abstract

An intermittently used two-unit system with a single repair facility is considered. The number of units required for the system performance at any time is governed by a particular semi-Markov process. Identifying suitable regeneration points, expressions are obtained for the distribution function of the time to the first disappointment and the mean rate of disappointments.
