Abstract: Flow lines often operate under stochastic and time-dependent influences, for example during the ramp-up phase. The considered model assumes stochastic processing times with arbitrary distributions which may change over time. Finite buffers are allocated between the machines to compensate for these stochastic effects. A discrete-time sampling approach for the analytical performance evaluation is proposed. The accuracy of the approach is demonstrated by comparison to a discrete-event simulation. Moreover, different time-dependent buffer allocation strategies are proposed and evaluated.
