In this EU-funded project focus is given to the development of a new system for maintenance and repair of aircraft turbines and truck engines. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags placed in critical components of the vehicle enable access to information in real-time regarding the condition of the parts. This information greatly enhances the planning and performance of maintenance activities.
At ITWM research focuses on:
- mathematical modeling of a supply chain network for the distribution and maintenance of helicopter turbines
- development of new methods for determining the minimum-cost supply chain configuration
- decision support for facility location, inventory management and distribution planning of spare parts in multiple periods
