Abstract

The level of repair analysis (lora) gives answers to three questions that are posed when deciding on how to maintain capital goods: 1) which components to repair upon failure and which to discard, 2) at which locations in the repair network to perform each type of repairs, and 3) at which locations in the network to deploy resources, such as test equipment. The goal is to achieve the lowest possible life cycle costs. Various models exist for the lora problem. However, these models tend to be restrictive in that specic business situations cannot be incorporated, for example, having repair equipment with a capacity restriction or the occurrence of unsuccessful repairs.We discuss and model various practically relevant extensions to an existing minimum cost ow formulation for the lora problem. We show the added value of these model renements in an extensive numerical experiment.
