“Optimal Integration of
Production Scheduling, Maintenance Planning and Quality Model”
today’s competitive environment, the importance of continuous production,
quality improvement and perfect maintenance planning has forced production
and delivery processes to become extremely reliable.
equipment in good condition through maintenance activities can ensure a more
reliable system. However, maintenance leads to temporary reduction in the
availability and capacity of machines that could otherwise be utilized for
production. Therefore, the coordination of maintenance, production and
quality is important to guarantee a good system performance.
central purpose of this work is integrating maintenance, production and
quality decisions to minimize the operational cost and improve the quality by
ensuring high quality production and effective maintenance interval .
