In this article we consider models of systems whose components have dependent life lengths with specific multivariate distributions. Upon failure, components are repaired. Two types of repair are distinguished. After perfect repair, a unit has the same life distribution as a new item. After imperfect repair, a unit has the life distribution of an item which is of the same age but has never failed. We study a model in which the mechanism for determining the nature of the repair is age dependent.
