Preventive Maintenance Scheduling Problem: Benchmark Instances
We have created a set of 23 preventive maintenance scheduling instances, built
from data collected from the power generation industry in Saudi Arabia
for the years from 2007 to 2010.
Details about the construction of the instances, and initial testing
of heuristic optimization
algorithms on them, can be found in the 2012 paper listed below.
The 2013 paper presents a more advanced approach to tackling the instances.
