%X This paper deals with the reliability analysis of a complex system consisting ofa two dissimilar unitâ€™ in a parallel configuration with correlated lifetime distribution. The system stops functioning when both units stop working. Both units are inspected periodically as well as being examined before assigning to repair facility. Under consideration of the system have two states: Normal and failed. Regenerative point technique has been used for the mathematical formulation of the model. The system is analyzed using Laplace transforms to solve the mathematical equations. Reliability, Availability, MTSF, Busy Period of repairmen and Cost-effectiveness of the system has been computed. The computed results have been demonstrated by tables and graphs. The repair time of both the units follows the negative exponential distribution with different parameters in a joint probability density function. The inspection times are assumed to follow the general distribution. Some particular cases of the system have also been derived from seeing the practical importance of the model.
