This work looks at several production and maintenance optimization problems, taking into account industrial constraints such as subcontracting, warranty, and quality in manufacturing and logistic fields. Maintenance strategies for different scenarios are developed in each chapter through considering specific conditions of certain industrial constraints. Analytical and simulation models are employed, together with numerical procedures, to identify the optimal strategy for the considered scenario.
In addition, this book deals with the latest advances in research on joint maintenance and production strategy extended to quality, warranty, leasing and logistics. In this context, forecasting production and delivery is highlighted in different management policies in integrated maintenance. The notion of leasing/warranty on the forecasting production/maintenance optimization problem is also highlighted, together with the concept of product quality (conforming and non-conforming products) on the global control policy of manufacturing systems.


1. Forecasting and Maintenance under Subcontracting Constraint with Delay in Transportation.
2. Sequentially Optimizing Production, Maintenance and Delivery Activities Taking into Account Product Returns.
3. A Decision Optimization Model for Leased Manufacturing Equipment with Warranty for a Production– Maintenance Forecasting Problem.
4. Global Control Policy Taking into Account Maintenance and Product Non-conformity.
