This paper establishes the model which aims at inspection and maintenance issue as to the deteriorating system during discrete state and continuous time by the Semi-Markov Decision Process. Due to the probability concerning state transition is difficult to derived, in addition to escape local optimal result, a algorithm which combines the concept of Q-learning and simulated annealing is proposed in this article to get the optimal maintenance policy. Finally we obtain the optimized result in… CONTINUE READING
