Abstract

During the operation of a copy machine, data are collected for statistical analysis and for an indication of error occurrences. For example there is a total copy count for controlling the advancement of the cleaning brush. At a certain count, the brush roller is advanced slightly toward the drum for cleaning purposes and, after several thousands of copies, the bristles become too short to properly clean the drum. Examples of errors include a late paper error count, i.e., the number of times the paper did not arrive at the drum at the proper time, resulting in no copies.
