Incorporates the concept of quality control in the probabilistic analysis of two‐stage production systems. Provides an integrated framework to consider manufacturing, inspection and rework activities simultaneously. The system is provided with an initial storage of unlimited capacity. Rework of a defective item produced by machine I is done on machine I itself and depends on the type of defect. Explicit expressions for some of the system characteristics have been obtained using the state‐space method and regeneration point technique. All the random variables involved in the analysis are assumed to be arbitrarily distributed (i.e. general).
