Abstract or Summary
  • An inspection-repair model is developed that presumes inspection is hazardous to the system being inspected. The form of the optimal inspection-repair policy is determined for different ranges of the model's parameters. The model is formulated as a partially observable Markov decision process with finite numbers of states and actions. The model is analyzed by dynamic programming and mathematical induction. The results obtained are compared to those previously found for a more simple model having no action of repair and no costs and rewards. A computer program and some examples are developed to illustrate the use of the new model. Several possible applications areas for the model are suggested, including industrial systems, military systems, and medical systems.
