An inspection policy with periodic checking times is considered. An optimum time which minimizes the s-expected cost until detection of failure is given, when we assume that the mean duration of undetected failure is approximately half the time between consecutive checking times. A numerical example shows that the approximation could be used for any Weibull distribution in practice.
