Abstract

This paper discusses a decision support system for a Tab manufacturing plant. Tab manufacturing mainly consists of six subsystems working in series .Two subsystems namely Grinding machine, Electroplating machine are supported by stand-by units with perfect switch over devices and the remaining four subsystem are prone to failure. The mathematical model of Tab manufacturing plant has been developed using Markov birth – death Process. The differential equations has been developed on the basis of probabilistic approach using transition diagram which are further solved for steady state availability in order to develop the decision matrices which provide the various availability levels for different combinations of failure and repair rates of each subsystem.

Key words: Availability; Differential Equations; Markov process; Steady State
