The objective of the research is to propose a system modeling method for aircraft maintenance program development applying the condition-based maintenance using AHM (Aircraft Health Management) from the viewpoint of aircraft manufacturer. The proposed model based on the MSG-3 (Maintenance Steering Group - 3) considers the uncertainty of aircraft maintenance environment related to the airline operation and assumed system degradation levels. Then, the proposed model is formulated by using the concept of a robust optimization method.
