Planning a highly reliable and efficient system has always been a primary interest for reliability engineers by devising the powerful design strategy and employing effective repair and replacement policy. Keeping in view this, the basic aim of this paper is to analyze the reliability of a system which comprised of two units A and B in which unit A is functional and B is held standby. Unit A after failure may be controlled or uncontrolled. The failed unit undergoes for repair in the controlled unit. If the repair of a unit is not controlled then it is replaced by a new one.  Upon the breakdown of operational unit A, unit B come becomes active instantaneously. Unit B after failure is repaired by regular repairmen. System failure takes place when both the units quit serving. The unit serves as good as a fresh after preventive repair and replacement policy. The regenerative point technique has been used to obtain the expression for several reliability measures. Finally, the graphical behavior of MTSF and profit of the present model has been observed for arbitrary values of parameters and costs.
