Abstract : The report describes an assembly line system with buffer inventory and storage areas between successive inventory stages. This area serves as a material supply or storage area when prior or successive stages are inoperative for maintenance reasons. The digital simulation of this model gives consideration to the effects of reliability and maintainability by allowing the operator to specify the distributions of time between breakdowns and time for repairs. Other parameters which may be varied are the initial inventory between stages, the maximum inventory capacities, and the system configuration. (Author)
