Scheduling preventive maintenance for modular designed components: A dynamic approach

Abstract

One of the benefits of modular design is ease-of-service. While modular design helps simplify field maintenance, extensive depot maintenance and spare modules are required to support the field maintenance. This study develops a dynamic approach for scheduling preventive maintenance at a depot with the limited availability of spare modules and other constraints. A backward allocation algorithm is proposed and applied to scheduling the preventive maintenance of an engine module installed in T-59 advanced jet trainers in the Republic of Korea Air Force. The algorithm developed by this study can be used to solve similar problems for various systems such as aerospace vehicles, heavy machinery, and medical equipment. The contribution of this study includes the uniqueness of the algorithm, the flexibility to deal with variables changing over time, and the ability to incorporate additional variables to handle complex situations.
