Models inspection co-ordination of a group of machines using a non-linear integer program. The objective of the model is to minimize the expected total cost per unit time, which is a function of a major inspection cost, minor inspection cost and the cost of failure, subject to the restriction that the inspection interval of each machine is an integer multiple of a basic time interval. Proposes a solution procedure to solve the inspection co-ordination problem. Uses a numerical example to illustrate the model and its proposed solution method.
