On the basis of various unit maintenance polices when the equipment is under inspection or under different levels of repair, the multi-maintenance policies based consumption rule of spare parts is studied. In addition, the spare parts consumption for the next year is predicted, which solves practical problems. Through improving the generalized model established in this paper, spare parts consumption of equipments group can be further analyzed based on the multi-maintenance policies, resulting in solution to problems including prediction of spare parts consumption of equipments group and the strategy optimization of spare parts stock amount.
