Maintenance schedule for a truck and loader fleet in a mine

MEMO 2014
In a mining era where the economies of scale tend to increase production rates, the production optimization relies on the availability of the process or equipment. Due to the fact that every failure causes an interruption of the process, a proactive maintenance approach should be adopted to avoid unexpected losses. 0/1 mixed integer linear programming approach is used to solve maintenance scheduling problem for mining fleet/process such that the planned production rate is satisfied.
