Course – Maintenance Planning and Optimization

June 14, 2017 10.00 - 16.00 h

The aims of the course are to:

  • Become familiar with the mathematical modeling of various maintenance strategies.
  • Use various operations research techniques to optimize maintenance strategies.

Due to ongoing automation of operational processes and increasing reliance on required equipment, the importance of effectively planned maintenance activities is growing. In this course, a variety of methods will be used to optimize maintenance strategies. Both single-unit and multi-unit systems will be analyzed using these methods. Furthermore, various preventive maintenance strategies will be considered (e.g., time-based, condition-based and opportunistic), and models with deterministic as well as stochastic parameters will be analyzed.
