This paper reports on a study in which delay-time analysis and snapshot modelling are jointly applied to model the downtime consequences of a high-speed production line maintained under an inspection system. It is seen that the model is capable of producing results in acceptable agreement with observation and, further, that the technique can be used to predict an efficient inspection frequency for existing plant and also for modified plant yet to be installed.
