An analytical model for evaluating the throughput of two-machine lines, characterised by intermediate buffer with finite capacity, deterministic processing times and multiple failure modes for each machine is presented in this paper. Both operation-dependent failure and time-dependent failure are captured in a unique model as extension of the existing literature that was dealing with either one of them. Each machine has two failure modes, one is operation-dependent and the other is time-dependent. Time to failure and time to repair are assumed to be geometrically distributed. The presented method calculates the steady-state probabilities of the manufacturing system with a computational effort that depends only on the number of failure modes and not on the buffer capacity. A performance comparison of the proposed model with existing techniques is also reported, the aim is to show the error introduced by an analytical model that considers the operation-dependent failure mode as approximation of the time-dependent one.
