This paper is concerned with the detection of failure of a system when the time to failure is a Weibull variate. The suggested inspection policy depends on a single meaningful parameter. Graphical aids for computing an appropriate inspection policy on the basis of costs, or on the basis of mean time between failure and its detection are given.
