Title: “Optimal Integration of  Production Scheduling, Maintenance Planning and Quality Model




In 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.


Keeping 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.


The 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 .
