Impact Analysis on Accelerating Deterioration to Maintenance of Latent Fault
Accelerating deterioration after latent fault appearance has a major influence on instituting maintenance strategy. Based on residual life after latent fault appearance, with the aim to acquire the minimal mean cost, the paper proposes maintenance model of regular inspection combined with periodic maintenance. The model of accelerating deterioration is discussed by calculating expected cumulative degradation cost. In the end the influence of accelerating deterioration on maintenance strategy is analyzed.
