The present paper is based on survey of machine repair problem (MRP). We have reviewed machine repair problems studied by many researchers and given some basic performance characteristic of queuing models. A bunch of work has been previously done on this front from past since it is realistic phenomena of many service systems. The current investigation presents a brief review of the major works done on machine repair problem (MRP) in past years. The bibliography consists of research articles which were published in journals of repute during the period 1994-2015. While determining the performance of any machining system, the main aim of decision makers or entrepreneurs is to get the maximum profit and reduce the inconvenience due to delay in service to the users; these objectives can be achieved by proper scheduling of the system. The main aim of this survey paper is to analyze various problems related to machine repair problem. We have tried to collect important results in the theory of machine repair problem and hope this will help other researchers to study such kind of problems.

The current investigation presents a brief review of the major works done on machine repair problem (MRP) in past years. The bibliography consists of research articles which were published in journals of repute during the period 1994-2015. While determining the performance of any machining system, the main aim of decision makers or entrepreneurs is to get the maximum profit and reduce the inconvenience due to delay in service to the users; these objectives can be achieved by proper scheduling of the system. The main aim of this survey paper is to analyze various problems related to machine repair problem.
