For a k-out-of-n:G subsystem, the mathematical determination of the most economical number of components in the subsystem is sought. Optimal values of k (for fixed n) and n (for fixed k), which minimize the mean total cost of k-out-of-n:G subsystems, are given. A numerical example illustrates the results
