Maintenance Optimization for Transport Vehicles in a Supply Chain

Nidhal Rezg, Dellagi Sofiene, Hajej Zied


In this paper, we are interested in determining a maintenance policy with an optimal cost to enable the company to generate significant profits, often the means of transport travelled different paths, they are characterized by the distance they covered; however each distance has an effect on the operating characteristics of means of delivery. The objective of this paper is twofold: It aims both to introduce the model of supply chain and specify distances, and codify the use of it in the proportional hazard model, later a maintenance policy was presented which takes into consideration the types of paths travelled by the means of delivery.
