Modeling and Analyzing the Effects of Periodic Inspection on the Performance of Safety-Critical Systems

This paper presents a method for incorporating into Markov models of safety-critical systems, periodic inspections and repairs which occur deterministically in time. Both perfect and imperfect inspections and repairs can be modeled. Based on this new modeling technique, closed-form solutions are der...
