Abstract

Condition-based maintenance (CBM) involves making decisions on maintenance based on the actual deterioration conditions of the components. It consists of a chain of states representing various stages of deterioration and a set of maintenance actions. Therefore, condition-based maintenance is a sequential decision-making problem. Reinforcement Learning(RL) is a subfield of Machine Learning proposed for automated decision-making. This article provides an overview of reinforcement learning and deep reinforcement learning methods that have been used so far in condition-based maintenance optimization.
