Article
Currently, in manufacturing, massive useful data about health condition and maintenance is often available thanks to Industry 4.0 technologies. However, how to take advantage of historical data to optimize maintenance policies for multi-component systems has still been a challenging problem. This is especially true when maintenance cost models at c...
Conference Paper
It is well-known that maintenance decision optimization for multi-component systems faces the curse of dimensionality. Specifically, the number of decision variables needed to be optimized grows exponentially in the number of components causing computational expensive for optimization algorithms. To address this issue, we customize a multi-agent de...
