In the present study, the model is analyzed probabilistically which comprises of one main unit and one standby unit. Initially, there is one main unit and one cold standby unit. The facility of concomitant working is provided in it, where both units may do concomitant working in order to fulfill the demand. When both main and standby unit stops functioning, the system goes to failed state. For repair there is only single repairman facility. The graphical interpretation is done for the model. Various measures of system effectiveness such as MTSF and Profit are obtained using semi Markov process and Regenerative point technique.
