Maintenance planning of heavy trucks at Scania is presently done using static cyclic plans where each maintenance occasion contains a xed set of components. Using vehicle operational data gained from on-board sensors we will be able to predict at which intervals each component needs to be maintained. However, dynamic planning is needed to take this new knowledge into account. Another benet using dynamic planning is that vehicle owners can in uence maintenance plans with regard to their business. For this reason we have implemented a prototype of an automated maintenance planner based on constraint programming techniques. The planner has successfully been tested on vehicles belonging to Scania's internal haulage contractor. In this paper we will describe the planner and what we have learned using and developing it as well as ongoing work on how the planner will be developed further.
