Abstract

This paper presents a fundamental online simulation that can be used to support operational decisions related to maintenance scheduling, resource allocation, spare parts inventory etc., within the context of Through-life Engineering Services. As an online system, the simulation model is physically coupled to the assets being maintained. In this way, every time there is a change in the asset condition (i.e. degradation), the simulation model will be automatically run to evaluate a set of operational decisions as a consequence of the degradation. Experimental cases comparing the proposed simulation model against the traditional approach will also be presented. The results showed the role of online simulation in enabling effective operations of engineering services.
