Reliability-Based Lifecycle Optimization with Maintenance Consideration
In traditional reliability-based design optimization (RBDO), a cost-type objective function is minimized while reliability constraints are maintained. The reliability constraints are usually static without the consideration of product lifecycle. In this work, several reliability-based design optimization models with different maintenance strategies are discussed. The product lifecycle cost is minimized while the constraints on product lifecycle reliability or availability are maintained. The First Order Reliability Method (FORM) is employed to calculate the time dependent reliability. An engineering example is used to demonstrate the proposed methods.
