Machine reliability and preventive maintenance planning for cellular manufacturing systems
The paper proposes a preventive maintenance (PM) planning model for the performance improvement of cellular manufacturing systems (CMS) in terms of machine reliability, and resource utilization. In a CMS, parts are processed by a group of interdependent machines, where machine reliability plays an important role in the performance improvement of the cell. Assuming that machine failure times follow a Weibull distribution, the proposed model determines a PM interval and a schedule for performing PM actions on each machine in the cell by minimizing the total maintenance cost and the overall probability of machine failures. The model uses a combined cost and reliability based approach, and optimizes maintenance costs by administering a group maintenance policy subject to a desirable machine reliability threshold. The study also proposes a CMS design model that integrates the above PM concepts into the design process. Illustrative examples are presented to demonstrate the applicability of ...
