PThe PhD position is part of the NWO funded project “MARCONI: Maritime Remote Control Tower for Service Logistics Innovation.” In this project, we aim to develop and demonstrate innovative service logistics concepts that exploit actual data on the state of maritime assets and the availability of the relevant maintenance resources. These concepts are aimed at (1) reducing maintenance costs, (2) increasing safety, by lowering the probability of unplanned system downtime and (3) reducing the number of unnecessary sailing movements (emissions) through smarter planning and/or clustering of maintenance activities. The ambition is to demonstrate the actual functioning of a remote service logistic control tower, with the long-term goal of developing and exploiting a scalable supply chain function in the maritime world. The PhD student will be a part of the research work-package on ‘Developing Service Logistics Decision Models’ led by TU/e. In the PhD project, there will be a close collaboration with the other partners of the MARCONI project: Boskalis, Damen, Gordian, Maastricht University, NLDA, Thales, RH Marine, Royal Netherlands Navy, and University of Twente.
