Abstract: This paper investigates the integrated production and imperfect preventive maintenance planning problem. The

main objective is to determine an optimal combined production and maintenance strategy that concurrently

minimizes production as well as maintenance costs during a given finite planning horizon. To enhance the

quality of the solution and improve the computational time, we reconsider the reformulation of the problem

proposed in (Aghezzaf et al., 2016) and then solved it with an effective MILP-based Relax-and-Fix/Fix-and-

Optimize method (RFFO). The results of this Relax-and-Fix/Fix-and-Optimize technique were also compared

to those obtained by a Dantzig-Wolfe Decomposition (DWD) technique applied to this same reformulation of

the problem. The results of this analysis show that the RFFO technique provides quite good solutions to the

test problems with a noticeable improvement in computational time. DWD on the other hand exhibits a good

improvement in terms of computational times, however, the quality of the solution still requires some more

improvements.
