A comprehensive exploration of stochastic models of a wide range of different types of manufacturing systems - flow lines, job shops, transfer lines, flexible manufacturing systems, flexible assembly systems and cellular systems. "Stochastic Models of Manufacturing Systems" outlines the major issues that have to be addressed in the design and operation of each type of system, and a comprehensive framework for modelling the interaction between material and information flow in manufacturing. It also features new results on topics such as repair and rework facilities, the division of the transfer line into stages, flexible assembly systems, degree of specialization (or scope) of manufacturing cells, and offers new treatment of classic issues and new models.
