Abstract: This thesis presents a method (ROMDA) that provides the possibility to tackle three design requirements (optimization towards robust reliability, provide information for preventive maintenance and re-use decisions) in an effective way without loss of quality of the solution.First, a theoretical framework has been developed. Based on computer-based simulation experiments it was demonstrated that conceptually it is possible to provide a solution for the three design requirements using one method. The ROMDA concept has been translated to a step-by-step practical protocol and tested by means of three case studies performed at two companies.The results of the simulation experiments together with the results of the case studies leads to the conclusion that it is indeed possible to develop an effective single method that can provide a solution for the three design requirements without loss of quality of the solution.
