Abstract


  • A System Dynamics model for resource provision policy in multi-unit

    maintenance program is developed. First, a scheme is developed to formulate and

    evaluate policies regarding the provision under uncertain condition or resource

    requirement in a period of planning to result in minimum maintenance cost. The

    model emphasizes on resourcing strategy involving human and procurement. It is

    composed of 3 sub-models presented in a causal loop modelling. The human

    resource sub-model focuses on policies related to provision and management. The

    procurement sub-model takes into account the procurement process and inventory

    system. Due to data availability, the verification has encloses only the relation

    between maintenance and human resources but further application on wide range

    of resources through case studies is intended. The advantage of this model is

    related to its wide outlook of interrelated variables of a complex multi-unit

    maintenance system. This model can show the impact of one decision in a certain

    maintenance resourcing system on the other maintenance resourcing system and

    will lead to an optimum policy for maintenance resource provision system.
