Abstract

One important issue in using the industrial and manufacturing facilities is to consider their impacts on the environment. Many of these equipment have negative effects on the environment when operated for sometimes. In this research the probabilistic logistic times and the destructive effects for maintenance are studied and appropriate model is suggested and evaluated. The aim of the proposed model is to optimize the total costs by determining the optimal inspection times by means of genetic algorithm. The results indicate that the proposed model improves the costs of maintenance.
