Some remarks on optimum inspection policies. (English) Zbl 0552.90034
We discuss optimum inspection policies by introducing the inspection density. We derive the optimum inspection policy by using this inspection density. The models discussed are: 1) the basic model, 2) the basic model with checking time, and 3) the basic model with imperfect inspection. For each model, we obtain the approximate optimum inspection policy minimizing the total s-expected cost by applying the calculus of variations.
