We characterize the structure of optimal policies for maintenance & replacement actions over a finite horizon. The context is machine monitoring when the following are true: 1) The machine can operate in one of N states in S/spl isin/{0,1,...,N-1} where 0 is good, 1 to N-2 represent increasing levels of deterioration (i.e., the system becomes increasingly worn, but is still able to produce usable parts), and N-1 is bad (or failed). 2) Observations are related probabilistically to the state of… CONTINUE READING
