The machine repair problem has attracted considerable attention in the field of queuing systems, due to the wide range of difficulties it entails. Wang, Liao and Yen [K.H. Wang, C.W. Liao, T.C. Yen, Cost analysis of the M/M/R machine repair problem with second optional repair: Newton-Quasi method, Journal of Industrial and Management Optimization. 6 (2010), 197-207] [1] derived a cost model to determine the optimal number of the repairmen, the optimal values of the first essential repair rate, and the second optional repair rate while maintaining the system availability at a specified level. In their approach, a direct search method is first used to determine the optimal number of repairmen followed by the Newton-Quasi method to search for the two repair rates. However, this two stage search method restricts the search space and cannot guarantee global minimum solutions. In overcoming these limitations, this study employs a particle swarm optimization algorithm to ensure a thorough search of the solution space in the pursuit of global minimum solutions. Numerical results support the superior search characteristics of the proposed solution.
