Abstract In this paper, an improved maintenance time prediction method is proposed to predict maintenance time in virtual environment based on the presented paper in 19thRQD conference sponsored by ISSAT. The improved method focuses on two points to increase the accuracy of prediction: (1) considering more factors in practical maintenance process and classifying the factors for compensation with different principals; (2) analyzing the interrelationship between virtual operation and actual operation and confirming the corresponding compensation time for each factor. The detailed analysis solves the ratio problem between virtual maintenance time and practical maintenance time that mentioned in the former research, and the feedback information on practical maintenance from different domains indicates the proposed method is accurate to a certain extent.
