ABSTRACT An explicit form of reliability and economical stationary performance indexes for monotonous multicomponent system with regard to its elements’ maintenance has been found. The maintenance strategy investigated supposes preventive maintenance execution for elements that has attained certain operating time to failure. Herewith for the time period of elements’ maintenance or restoration operable elements, functionally connected with the failed ones, are deactivated. The problems of maintenance execution frequency optimization have been solved. For the model building the theory of semi-Markovian processes with a common phase field of states is used.
