This paper presents an analytical approach for the availability evaluation of flexible manufacturing cells (FMC). We define availability measures in conditions when a manufacturing system is considered operational as long as its production capacity requirements are satisfied. The advantage of the approach is that constructing a system level Markov chain is not required. A manufacturing system is decomposed into manufacturing cells. For each manufacturing cell a Markovian model is derived and solved to find the probability of a subset of working machines in each cell, and a subset of the operating material handling carriers that satisfies the manufacturing capacity requirements.
