Optimal replacement planning by geometric programming

Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic researchpeer-review


Geometric programming (GP) is suggested as an analytical tool for solving replacement problems with infinite time horizon. The GP solution method is described and explained through the formulation and solution of a typical replacement problem. A simple example is worked out to demonstrate the pint that GP has potential as an appropriate mathematical tool for the analysis of certain types of replacement problems.
