Maintenance can be the factor of either increasing or decreasing system's availability, so it is valuable work to evaluate a maintenance policy from cost and availability point of view, simultaneously and according to decision maker's priorities. This study proposes a Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP) framework for a partially observable and stochastically deteriorating system in which inspection and maintenance optimal policies of Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) must be determined to maximize the average profit and availability of the system simultaneously. A recent exact method named Accelerated Vector Pruning method (AVP) and some other popular estimating and exact methods are applied and compared in solving such problems.

An Optimal Preventive Maintenance Model to Enhance Availability and Reliability of Flexible Manufacturing Systems

General preventive maintenance model for the components of a system, which improves the reliability to ‘as good as new,’ was used to optimize the maintenance cost. The cost function of a maintenance policy was minimized under given availability constraint. On the other hand, in order to ensure appropriate reliability and availability, the development of the optimal maintenanc...

Optimal Inspection, Maintenance and Rehabilitation Policies For Infrastructure Networks

State-of-the-art infrastructure management systems utilize Markov Decision Processes as a methodology for maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R) decision-making. The underlying assumption in this methodology is that an inspection is performed at the beginning of every year, and that inspections reveal the true condition state of the facility, with no error. As a result, after an inspection, the d...

Optimal Inspection and Maintenance for Stochastically Deteriorating Systems

Our motivation is the problem of determining condition based maintenance policies, for systems whose degradation may be modelled by a continuous time stochastic process. The process is modelled by a Lévy process; failure occurs when the degradation reaches a critical level. The system may be inspected or repaired at any time, and that the costs of inspections and repairs may depend on the of sy...
