A production model and maintenance planning model for the process industry

By J. Ashayeri, A. Teelen and W.J. Selen


In this paper a model is developed to simultaneously plan preventive maintenance and production in a process industry environment, where maintenance planning is extremely important. The model schedules production jobs and preventive maintenance jobs, while minimizing costs associated with production, backorders, corrective maintenance and preventive maintenance. The formulation of the model is flexible, so that it can be adapted to several production situations. The performance of the model is discussed and alternate solution procedures are suggested.Production Models;Maintenance;production
