  • We consider a manufacturing system with finite buffer and arbitrary topology where a machine takes a vacation (i.e. is unavailable for processing due to the processing of secondary jobs or maintenance of machines) of random duration every time the machine becomes idle. To this end, we develop an approximation (analytical) methodology to calculate the throughput of the system using queueing networks together with decomposition, isolation and expansion methodologies. The methodology was tested… CONTINUE READING
