Current activities

Salah is currently working on scheduling challenges within maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) operations in the aerospace sector. This study provides a useful contribution toward identifying maintenance scheduling problems which can be successfully used by MRO companies. Through the simulation used, MRO companies may be able to better manage the element of uncertainty linked to maintenance scheduling. Additionally, this study could help MRO companies and airline operators to avoid flight delays, ultimately improving their profits.
