Abstract


  • The field of maintenance project planning and scheduling is attracting increasing

    attention due to ever growing competition among manufacturing organisations. There is

    a lack of studies that has tackled all the aspects of maintenance project implementation

    such as costs, resources, down times, uncertainties, operational constraints, among

    others. Therefore, an approach which uses a unitary structuring method and discrete

    event simulation to integrate relevant data about the maintenance projects is proposed.

    The results of the evaluation, on a case from paper-pulp industry, have shown that the

    proposed approach is able to overcome most of the issues of maintenance planning and

    scheduling.
