Flow Lines with Rework Loops and Identical Processing Times

To analyze production lines with scrapping and rework, we extend an existing model of a transfer line1 by allowing for two additional phenomena concerning the flow of material. These two phenomena are split and merge operations.2 The previously existing model as well as the numerical technique to determine performance measures assumed a purely linear flow of material. This situation is depicted in Figure 4.1.
