This research endeavor focused on a high volume and low mix Electronics Manufacturing and Service (EMS) provider, which produces automotive sensors through a Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) philosophy. With impending significant challenges due to possible strategic changes at this particular facility, Industrial and Systems Engineering tools were effectively utilized to maintain and improve the production throughput and quality.If the maintenance program is improved, the system can be repaired quickly [ Castro and Cavalca, 2006]. ... Instead of proceeding with preventive maintenance , using corrective maintenance as mentioned in Boukas  and in Kenne et al .
