Abstract: The relationships among production planning, maintenance decisions and machine yield are crucial in a number of manufacturing environments such as the semi-conductor industry. This paper presents an integrated maintenance and production decision making framework with stochastically proportional endogenous yield rate and random demand. Finding the solution for this two-stage nonlinear stochastic program with endogenous uncertainty is not straightforward, and has not been considered previously. An augmented probability simulation based method is utilized to solve for the proposed decision model. We demonstrate the use of the proposed approach by conducting a numerical study and sensitivity analysis. We discuss the trade-offs involved among the yield, and simultaneous decisions of production planning and maintenance.
