This study presents a new approach for integrated tail assignment and maintenance task scheduling decision support. Wasted maintenance resources, restricted fleet availability for schedule flexibility, inconsistent planning, and no emphasis on schedule resilience are all inefficiencies that now arise from airlines' separate and manual tail...

Water management is an integral part of Dutch history, driven by the continuous need to reduce flood risk. Because a large area of the country is located below Normaal Amsterdams Peil (NAP), there is an ongoing challenge to safely discharge all the water to the sea. Therefore, flood safety policy has become crucial to protect the Netherlands...

Lifetime analyses are crucial for ensuring the durability of new Light-emitting Diodes (LEDs) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) is necessary to quantify a lack of usable failure and degradation data. This work presents a new framework for predicting the lifetime of LEDs in terms of lumen maintenance, effectively quantifying the natural...

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) have gained traction in recent years. A major non-functional quality of CPS is performance since it affects both usability and security. This critical quality attribute depends on the specialized hardware, simulation engines, and environmental factors that characterize the system under analysis. While a large body...

This paper introduces an ontology-based Digital Twin (DT) architecture for the lighting industry, integrating simulation models, data analytics, and visualization to represent luminaires. The ontology standardizes luminaire components, facilitating interoperability with design tools. The calculated ontology-level metrics suggest mid-level...

Effective transportation network management systems should consider safety and sustainability objectives. Existing research on large-scale transportation network management often employs the assumption that bridges can be considered individually under these objectives. However, this simplification misses accurate system-level representations,...

This article examines the caretaking practices of vacant domestic spaces amid a migratory crisis and generalized collapse. Caracas is conceptualized as a ‘city of aftermath’, where the material residues of modernity are reconfigured in response to the logic of crisis and the needs of migrants, re-signifying spaces and extending their life...

Initial damage, caused by previous wave loading or other events, might affect the hydraulic stability of pattern-placed revetments. Three common types of damage are considered in this study. The effect of this assumed initial damage on the hydraulic stability and failure probability of revetments is quantified using a FEM model. This model is...

Spacecraft and aircraft systems collect health-related data continuously, which can give an indication of the systems' health status. While they rarely occur, the repercussions of such system anomalies, faults, or failures can be severe, safety-critical and costly. Therefore, the data are used to anticipate any kind of anomalous behaviour or...

The number of digital systems that is used for business processes in many organizations is increasing. These digital systems can be used to support decision-making in the maintenance process. In this research the effects of digitalization on the maintenance process are evaluated. This is done by focusing on five aspects: actors, agreements,...

Aero engines are critical components in aviation, relying on thermodynamics to convert fuel energy into thrust. Maintenance of these engines constitutes a significant portion of operational costs. Gas path analysis (GPA) is essential for engine health management, relying on performance modeling to simulate engine operations accurately. This...

There is increasingly more expensive maintenance that needs to be performed on the Dutch railway network. Good maintenance schedules reduce costs, minimise hindrance to passenger and freight travel, and follow restrictions imposed by available resources, legislation and other agreements. The railway maintainer has modelled this maintenance...

Efficient maintenance scheduling is a critical objective for aircraft carriers and Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Organizations (MROs) to minimize aircraft downtime. While predictive maintenance models have improved, accurately identifying materials, especially spare parts, for specific maintenance events remains challenging. This paper...

Floating offshore wind turbines offer a means to access wind resources in waters that are too deep for bottom-fixed offshore wind turbines. To operate a floating wind farm, it must be possible to perform maintenance on the turbines. A critical maintenance aspect is the exchange of a major component such as a blade. It involves a lift of a large...

This research aim was to design a centralised model that redefines definitions, standardises maintenance by categorisation, and reduces waste by introducing new slot lengths, leading to an equilibrium between flights and maintenance. This equilibrium enhances the airline’s capacity to manage maintenance efficiently and ensures greater uptime....

Ensuring reliable and safe performance of medical devices in healthcare institutions is crucial for the wellbeing of patients. For this, physiological simulators may be used, which provide reference signals to compare against. The usage of physiological simulators, such as ECG simulators, as medical device testers is widely extended in high...

As the Western European building stock ages, attention is increasingly allocated to the maintenance of building components, particularly mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems. Although the latter are essential in ensuring the correct operation of a building and the safety of its occupants, they remain the crafts where the most...

Routine maintenance is an essential requirement for the optimal functioning and longevity of any technical system that has been constructed. The issue occurs when the maintenance planning for such a structure becomes necessary. The adverse weather conditions prevalent in the Netherlands contribute to the heightened danger associated with the...
