Optimal allocation of redundancy in a series system with separately maintained repairable subsystems subject to multiple constraints is investigated for maximizing system reliability using simplex pattern search and separable programming. The constraints, besides the usual ones, include one based on s-expected busy periods of the maintenance facilities. A numerical example illustrates the method.
