Optimal Vacation Policy for a Manufacturing Facility Using Retrial System

Abstract:

Article Preview

We consider a manufacturing system which takes vacation and subjects to breakdown. Items arrive to the production facility according to a compound Poisson process. Using supplementary variables we determine the probability generating function (p.g.f) of the system size. Under the Long Run Average Cost formulation, we show that the optimal vacation policy is either single or multiple vacation policy.
