On 18 March 2021, Michiel uit het Broek received the Willem R. van Zwet best thesis award from the VVSOR (the Dutch society for Statistics and Operations Research).
The W.R. van Zwet Award is a prize awarded to an excellent Ph.D. in statistics or operations research. Uit het Broek has won the award for his PhD thesis “Condition-based production and maintenance decisions”. He was supervised by Prof. R.H. Teunter, Dr. B. de Jonge and Dr. J. Veldman.
Uit het Broek: “The jury was enthused by the view that condition information (e.g., obtained by measuring noise, vibration, and temperature) is not only valuable to improve maintenance planning but can also be used to improve production decisions. The key point of my thesis is, that many machines such as wind turbines wear out faster when they produce faster, and thus the degradation behaviour of machines can be controlled by adjusting their production rate.”
Last year Uit het Broek was also awarded the PhD WCM Research Award 2020 for this thesis.
