Maintenance Support throughout the Life-Cycle of High Value Manufacturing Products. Interoperability Issues
Fedotova Alena, Taratoukhine Victor, Kupriyanov Yury
This paper reviews existing methods and techniques addressing the problem of maintenance support throughout the life cycle for high value manufacturing products. As part of this research the analysis of current Enterprise Asset Management systems (EAM) systems is conducted, including gap analysis and to-be model for future complex product life-cycle management. In order to contribute towards a more comprehensive solution, an advanced approach (algorithm) of periodic maintenance is presented. The algorithm based on constraint programming methods is briefly presented and the future research directions are discussed.
