The Impact of Maintenance Planning on Large Project Management Performance



 Structured methodologies and tools for the tailored design of factories are adopted by suppliers of manufacturing systems but usually discontinued after the design phase.  The use of an ontology-based virtual factory, continuously synchronised with the real plant, is proposed to guarantee digital continuity and enable in-situ simulation during the operating phase.  This digital counterpart of the system can be used for integrated shop-floor simulations to assess production and maintenance planning decisions' future impact. An industrial application is provided in the context of roll shops, i.e., systems devoted to the grinding of cylinders for rolling mills.
