Abstract: The selective maintenance problem (SMP) arises in many large multicomponent systems which are operated for consecutive missions interspersed with finite breaks during which only a selected set of component repairs or replacements can be carried out due to limited time, budget, or resources. The problem is to decide which components and degree of repairs should be performed in order to guarantee a pre-specified performance level during the subsequent mission. Current SMP formulations in the literature are nonlinear, deal mainly with basic or series-parallel systems and mostly use heuristic methods to obtain solutions.
