Grouping maintenance strategy with availability constraint under limited repairmen
8th IFAC Symposium on Fault Detection, Supervision and Safety of Technical Processes, SAFEPROCESS 2012
The paper deals with a development of the rolling horizon approach introduced recently for grouping maintenance strategies of multi-component systems by integrating two efficient optimization algorithms. The proposed approach can help to construct an optimal maintenance planning with a given availability constraint under limited repairmen. Thanks to the rolling horizon spirit, the maintenance planning can be updated to take into account short-term information which could be changed with time. A numerical example of a multi-component system is finally introduced to illustrate the use and the advantages of the proposed approach in the maintenance optimization framework.
