Author: Ritu Bansal, Dr. Pardeep Goel
Abstract: In this paper, system parameters of Poultry, Cattle and Fish Feed Plant are analyzed using Regenerative Point Graphical Technique (RPGT). Plant consists of three grinders which grind three different raw material to powder form depending upon the feed to be prepared, together with a single cold standby for all these grinders, one mixer which compounds that powder with molasses and weighing & packing unit. When the standby unit is online system works in reduced capacity. On failure of standby unit or mixer or packing repair unit, the system fails. Taking failure and repair rates exponential problem is formulated and solved using RPGT. Taking various probability considerations a transition diagram depicting the possible states in which system can stay is drawn, transition probabilities and mean so-journ times evaluated, the system is discussed for steady state conditions. Particular cases are taken, tables and graphs are also prepared to discuss the practical trend of the system.
