Throughput analysis is important for the design, operation and management of production systems. A substantial amount of research has been devoted to developing analytical methods to estimate the throughput of production systems with unreliable machines and finite buffers. In this paper we summarise the recent studies in this area. In addition to the(More)
Throughput analysis is important for the design, operation and management of manufacturing systems. Due to the large state space, exact analytical results only exist for two-machine serial lines. To analyse longer lines or more complex systems, the two-machine line model becomes the building block for further development. Therefore, many two-machine line(More)
