Özet

Most production lines keep a minimal level of inventory stock to save storage costs and buffer space. However, the random nature of processing, breakdown, and repair times can significantly affect the efficiency of a production line and force the stocking of work-in-process inventory. We are interested in the case when starvation and blockage are preferentially avoided.
