M. N. GOPOLAN – S. KANNAN: Ont he expected output analysis of two-stage transfer-line production systems subjest to inspectionc and rework

This papr deals with the transient analysis of two-stage transfer-line production systems subject to an initial storage of unlimited capacity and inter-stage, end-stage inspections. It provides an integrated framework to consider manufacturing, inspection and rework activities simultaneously. Rework of a defective item produced by a machine is done ont he same machine itself. Explicit expressions for some of the system characteristics have been obtained using the state-space method and regeneration point technique. All the random variables involved in the analysis are assumed to be arbitrarily distributed (i.e., general).
