**An optimal maintenance policy for repairable systems with delayed repairs.**
*(English)*
Zbl 1210.90055

Summary: This work considers a combined maintenance strategy in which the repair of the system failures is performed only in an interval of time of the working period. The objective of this paper is to find the optimal interval in which the repairs can be performed.
