MWANGA, Y.A.; JOUBERT, J.W.  and  YADAVALLI, V.S.S. A complex three-unit parallel system with preparation time for repair. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp.59-68. ISSN 2224-7890.

It is reasonable to expect that preparation time is needed to ready a repair facility before a repair can be carried out. A three-unit system with a "preparation time' for the repair facility is studied in this paper. The steady-state availability of such a system is obtained. The asymptotic confidence limits of the steady state availability are obtained numerically.
