Subject: Deferred Repair and Availability
Recently I read a paper on the effects of deferred repair on availability. I was surprised to find that the results were worse for steady-state vs. 5 year interval. Is it not counter-intuitive? The authors argue that trasient solution of avaialbility models over shorter time horizon are more desirable. I would appreciate if someone can provide me their opinion on it.
