Development of a dynamic grouping maintenance strategy for a geographically dispersed production system

Abstract : In the recent years, the Geographically Dispersed Production System (GDPS) with a number of advantages such as saving the product delivered costs (closed to the clients), improving quality of services (short delivery time, high quality after-sales services) has been extensively developed by many manufacturing companies to ensure their competitiveness. In operation, the GPDS faces many challenges concerning standards, regulation, production management, and especially maintenance planning and optimization due to the geographical dispersion of production sites. However, few studies have been developed for maintenance strategies of GDPSs. To face this challenge, the main objective of this thesis is to develop a dynamic grouping maintenance strategy for a GDPS with consideration of dependencies between at both component and site level (economic, geographical dependencies) and impacts of dynamic contexts (i.e. varying deterioration rate of components, change of maintenance routes, maintenance opportunities, etc.). In this strategy, maintenance routing and scheduling are jointly considered in a global model. The model aims at finding an optimal maintenance and routing plan. For this purpose, a cost structure and a dependence model jointly considering economic and geographical dependence are formulated. They are used as a basis for the development of the global model of maintenance routing and scheduling. In addition, to find a joint optimal maintenance and routing plan, advanced algorithms using jointly Genetic Algorithm and Branch and Bound are proposed. Finally, a numerical study is investigated to evaluate the performance and the advantage as well as limits of the proposed maintenance strategy.
