Integrated Maintenance and Cost Optimisation of Libyan Cement Factory using Witness Simulation

Elbahlul Mussa Abogrean, Muhammad Latif


This paper looks into how simulation can be used and developed to combat and aid integrated maintenance and cost optimisation of Libyan cement factory by using simulation as an intelligent maintenance tool to enable intelligent decisions to be made by maintenance management. The cost of preventive maintenance against corrective maintenance, the loss of production and the delay in schedule. Also this paper presents a methodology by integrating maintenance, repair and replacement decisions in bridge management based on reliability, optimization, and life-cycle cost. The overall total cost incurred per minute due to machine failure for more intelligent maintenance decision making.  The end result of the model identifies a true to life cost of preventive and corrective maintenance incurred by organisation due to failures.
