What is it about?

The aim of this study was to maximize the productivity of a manufacturing factory by applying mathematical programming methods while simultaneously considering the requirements of efficient maintenance. A case study is used to show how systems theory can be used as the basis for evidence-based decision-making in a factory manufacturing line in Morocco.

Why is it important?

Despite the potential for conflict between optimal production objectives and efficient maintenance in high-performance factories, the four-month case application suggests that systems theory is a key for arbitration.


Research implications are presented along with future research directions.
