Abstract : The article discusses the case of a firm that owns a fleet of end items and a repair facility for conducting periodic scheduled maintenance of the end items. If the number of units of operational end items is less than required, the firm can correct the deficiency by taking several courses of action. The optimal set of actions to be taken by the firm under various assumptions is determined. A numerical example is solved using both mathematical and graphical methods. (Author)
