The present paper stochastically analyze a system comprising two dissimilar units (unit-1/unit-2) working in series configuration. System fails completely when either of the units gets failed. The repair time of unit-2 is considered to be much more as compared to the repair time of unit-1. So, to minimize the breakdown period of the system, a standby unit is provided against the second unit. Regenerative point technique (RPT) is used to develop a semi-markovian reliability model for the mentioned system. Optimum cut-off points concerning the profitability of the system have also been obtained. The model has applications in industries, particularly in aluminum industry.
