On new optimal preventive maintenance strategies for navigation-information systems with penalties

  • M. S. Finkelstein
  • M. B. Rozengauz


A classical optimal age replacement problem of a system or its part is considered and generalized to the case when the quality of the system performance is characterized by the corresponding penalty function. This setting is applied to navigation-information systems, where the penalty is defined by the accuracy of the corresponding navigation parameters. Three optimization models are considered and discussed. Some simple examples illustrating the obtained results are given.
