Abstract: This paper deals with the stochastic modeling
and analysis of a
stone crushing system having one Apron feeder, one Grizzly and one Primary Gyratory Crusher. This group of equipments are used to get iron ores form stones in the mineral
crushing plants. Failure
and repair time distributions of all dissimilar units are taken to be negative exponential whereas
preventive maintenance time is taken arbitrarily.
Using regeneration point technique,
several measures of system effectiveness which are
managers and engineers are obtained.
Also, some graphs
are plotted to highlight the important results.
Keywords: Reliability, Avaihbility, Markov renewal process,
