Abstract : In a large military or industrial organization, in which equipment is operated at a number of field locations, maintenance may be performed at the individual field sites or at a central location, or maintenance resources may be divided between a central location and the field sites. The problem of choosing an optimal balance between centralized and decentralized maintenance then arises. The present paper examines the application of queuing theory to this problem. (Author)
