Maintenance control deals with the co‐ordination of maintenance demand and resources in such a way that stated objectives are satisfied. This allocation problem is characterized by complexity, uncertainty and flexibility. These conditions warrant a hierarchical decision structure primarily...
Addresses a deterministic maintenance‐scheduling problem for a group of non‐identical machines. The problem is formulated as a mixed integer non‐linear program which is approached heuristically. In the model formulation, it is assumed that a major overhaul brings the machine back to its new...
Analyses the system of work in the maintenance departments of 59 Saudi industries and services. The sample includes 13 manufacturing, 12 metals, nine chemical and 25 other industries and services. The data were collected by a specially designed survey. Results show that maintenance departments...
Manufacturing companies are under pressure to minimize production costs. Reducing downtime and minimizing maintenance costs are the traditional approach. Improving production equipment effectiveness as prescribed in total productive maintenance (TPM) is a relatively recent development. Outlines...
A new policy for joint optimization of age replacement and spare provisioning has been proposed by incorporating a continuous review ( s, S ) type inventory policy, where s is the reorder level and S is the maximum stock level. Gives cost formulations for a single operating unit situation and...
Deals with planning the maintenance scheduling of a group of non‐identical production units. Develops a realistic model for the joint overhaul problem by incorporating the cost of co‐ordination. The model selects overhaul schedules that minimize the average total cost of operation which...
Prediction of the duration of the downtime caused by maintenance, especially in the cases where the system considered consists of several repairable items, presents a challenge for maintenance managers, because of possible revenue losses during these intervals of time. Responds to this challenge...
