This chapter discusses an integrated model of batch production and machine maintenance scheduling on a single deteriorating machine and flow shop with a deteriorating machine that produces an item to be delivered at a common due date. The model describes the trade-off between production costs and maintenance costs as the increase of production run length. The objective function of the model is to minimize total cost consisting of in-process and complete inventory holding costs, setup cost, preventive and corrective maintenance costs, and rework cost. The problem is to determine the best production run length and maintenance actions that minimize the total cost.
