Method of Availability Control in the Transport System using Simulation Model of Operation and Maintenance Process

Open access


The paper presents the description of algorithm for calculation characteristics of simulation model for the operation and maintenance process of transport means. The model presented in the paper constitutes an integral element of the developed complex method of quality control in elaborate technical object performance systems. In the example presented in the paper, the evaluation criteria consist of the availability of technical object as well as unit profit generated in the states of the modeled operation and maintenance process. On the basis of the results of research carried out at an existing operation and maintenance system, entry data for the model were obtained and simulation experiments were carried out.
