  • Abstract:

    The integration in production planning, maintenance and subcontracting has attracted much attention from researchers in recent years. These areas are usually treated independently, a fact that has yielded independent models for each function. It is widely held that these separate models will provide suboptimal solutions, due to the fact that they are interrelated. A proper understanding of this dependency will open a new avenue for more integrated models and subsequently result in significant savings in operational cost, on the on hand, and improved efficiency for any production system, on the other. The objective of this paper is to review the literature on models addressing different aspects of integration in the aforementioned areas and to identify possible future directions.
