One of the most important maintenance decisions is when to stop doing maintenance on an aircraft. For questions concerning actual retirement schedules, Cervino has developed a method based on genetic algorithms. Ekstrand says. Cervino’s Opus Suite also includes tools for optimizing inventory levels, at the acquisition of a fleet, during its regular operation and as the fleet is being drawn down by retirement. Following that case, Cervino optimized inventories for two different fleets, one phasing in and one phasing out. “By actively working with inventory optimization during ramp up and retirement we could cut the costs of the inventories by an additional 25% while maintaining the same service level”, Ekstrand says.
