Modelling the failure process of a repairable system is vitally important in many industrial sectors such as the offshore industry and the transport industry, in which properly maintaining assets is needed. Among the various models, the geometric process (GP) has been widely applied, mainly in the reliability and maintenance engineering, since its introduction. A book on the GP was published in 2007 and included the GP-related research by that year. However, since then, much research has been conducted, which creates a necessity to review the existing publications relating to the GP, its various extensions and applications since 2007. This paper serves for this purpose.
