Abstract
The maintenance system should be built taking into account the specific exploiting conditions, that is, to take into account not only the running distance between repairs, but the volume of the planned maintenance was made (both preventive and corrective) and their intervals. The paper presents principles and algorithms to optimize the meantime between repairs for the components of vehicles at a given level of reliability parameters. This algorithm can be applied to the worn parts of vehicles through the attrition survey in the specific exploiting conditions and calculating the reliability indexes respectively.
