Abstract

The solution is given to the problem of determining the efficiency of N machines looked after by an operative who walks round them in one direction, always taking the same time to walk to a given machine from the previous one and to inspect it and service it (we call this overall time the "walking time"), and then, if the machine has stopped, taking a fixed time to repair it.
