This paper summarizes my recent work in analyzing preventive maintenance of the following kinds of repairable systems: 1-unit systems, 2-unit standby systems, and a system with unrepairable spare units. Some appropriate reliability measures of such systems are given, and optimum preventive maintenance policies which maximize or minimize these measures are derived under suitable conditions.
