There exist some reliability models whose performances increase by partitioning them into parts. Such a typical model is the basic inspection policy in which an operating unit is checked at suitable times for a finite time span and its failure is detected. This paper applies the concept of the basic inspection policy to five models: back‐up for hard disk, checkpoint for double modular redundancy, job partition, garbage collection, and network partition. The performances of each model are analytically evaluated.
