Abstract. We analyse the recovery time of a duplex system characterized by warm standby and attended by two general heterogeneous repairmen. In order to describe the random behaviour of the system, we introduce a stochastic process endowed with time-dependent transition measures satisfying coupled partial differential equations. The solution procedure is based on the theory of sectionally holomorphic functions combined with the notion of dual transforms. As a non-standard example, we consider the case of Weibull-Gnedenko repair.
