Abstract

This paper presents an application of GERT in an economic analysis of the product life cycle of a reparable item. The life cycle of the product has been modelled as a semi-Markov process defined by parameters of transition probabilities, transition time distributions, and transition costs. GERT, a set of procedures which can bde applied to certain types of networks, is used to analyze this network model.
