The analytic hierarchy process applied to maintenance strategy selection

  title={The analytic hierarchy process applied to maintenance strategy selection},
  author={Maurizio Bevilacqua and Marcello Braglia},
  journal={Rel. Eng. & Sys. Safety},
This paper describes an application of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) for selecting the best maintenance strategy for an important Italian oil refinery (an Integrated Gasification and Combined Cycle plant). Five possible alternatives are considered: preventive, predictive, condition-based, corrective and opportunistic maintenance. The best maintenance policy must be selected for each facility of the plant (about 200 in total). The machines are clustered in three homogeneous groups after a… CONTINUE READING
