WIP and CSP-1 quality control in a tandem queueing production system

Abstract

Potential unreliabilities in the manufacturing process have made the use of quality control procedures an important tool available to control a system's manufacturing quality. The purpose of this paper is to study the mutual effects of WIP inventory, manufacturing process reliability and quality control (CSP-1 inspection) in a queue-like manufacturing system, which is defined by two queues in tandem. Several observations are made that have implications to the strategic design of unreliable production systems with limited buffers.
