Modelling and simulation for the joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of production systems (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Zahedi-Hosseini, F. (2018, December). Modelling and simulation for the joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of production systems. Presented at Winter Simulation Conference 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden

Simulation methodologies are developed to model the joint optimization of preventive maintenance and spare parts inventory for a specific industrial plant under different production configurations. First, spare parts provisioning for a single-line sy... Read More about Modelling and simulation for the joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of production systems.

Joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of parallel production systems (2018)
Journal Article
Zahedi-Hosseini, F., Scarf, P., & Syntetos, A. (2018). Joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of parallel production systems. Journal of Manufacturing Systems, 48(Part A), 73-86. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmsy.2018.06.002

We model a joint inspection and spare parts inventory policy for maintaining machines in a parallel system, where simultaneous downtime seriously impacts upon production performance and has a significant financial consequence. This dependency between... Read More about Joint maintenance-inventory optimisation of parallel production systems.

Optimisation of inspection policy for multi-line production systems (2018)
Journal Article
Zahedi-Hosseini, F., Syntetos, A., & Scarf, P. (2018). Optimisation of inspection policy for multi-line production systems. European Journal of Industrial Engineering, 12(2), 233. https://doi.org/10.1504/EJIE.2018.090616

This paper develops a simulation model to determine the cost-optimum inspection policy for a multi-line production system taking account of simultaneous downtime. The machines in the multi-line system are subject to a two stage failure process that i... Read More about Optimisation of inspection policy for multi-line production systems.

Joint optimisation of inspection maintenance and spare parts provisioning: a comparative study of inventory policies using simulation and survey data (2017)
Journal Article
Zahedi-Hosseini, F., Scarf, P., & Syntetos, A. (2017). Joint optimisation of inspection maintenance and spare parts provisioning: a comparative study of inventory policies using simulation and survey data. Reliability Engineering and System Safety, 168, 306-316. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ress.2017.03.007

The demand for industrial plant spare parts is driven, at least in part, by maintenance requirements. It is therefore important to jointly optimise planned maintenance and the associated spare parts inventory using the most appropriate maintenance an...

Modelling and simulation of a mattress production line using ProModel. (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Khalili, M., & Zahedi-Hosseini, F. (2013, December). Modelling and simulation of a mattress production line using ProModel. Presented at Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) 2013, Washington, DC

Understanding the current manufacturing setup and accurately predicting the performance of a system over time makes modeling and simulation an ideal tool for systems’ planning. This case study aims mainly at exploring the application of modeling and... Read More about Modelling and simulation of a mattress production line using ProModel..

Modelling and simulation for the joint optimisation of inspection maintenance and spare parts inventory in multi-line production settings
Thesis
Zahedi-Hosseini, F. (in press). Modelling and simulation for the joint optimisation of inspection maintenance and spare parts inventory in multi-line production settings. (Thesis). University of Salford

A simulation methodology is developed to model the joint optimisation of preventive maintenance and spare parts inventory in multi-line settings. The multi-line machines are subject to failure, based on the delay-time concept, and a selection of poli...
