Background: Nowadays, the manufacturing industry is much more fiercely competitive
and global than ever before. For sustainable increases in market share and profitability, manufacturers
are aiming to improve the quality of products and maintain the reliability of manufacturing systems.
Objective: Therefore, to simultaneously optimize the quality and reliability for manufacturing systems
has become an important research topic in recent years.
Methods: This study presents an overview of the methods for modeling manufacturing systems,
especially considering the system reliability and the product quality. And then, we review the optimization
methods for manufacturing system maintenance and production strategy.
Conclusion: Finally, optimization methods and some challenges are summarized for future studies.
