The essential need of any industry to raise productivity is to make the system available all the time without any obstructions. In this study, the main focus is on continued production from the system with the mechanism of different functioning modes. For the intended concept, the author studied the steam generation plant of the fertilizer industry with the presumption of operating the system at full or reduced capacity. The novelty of this research is to offer the provision of a repair facility for boiler over fans based on corresponding functioning modes. The above system having boiler and FD fans can't function at actual capacity on fan failure, so the facility provided to operate the system at reduced capacity can enhance availability and productivity. Also, numerical evaluation for MTSF, availability and profit analysis summed up using the theory of semi-Markov processes and the regenerative point technique. Furthermore, graphical plotting for MTSF, availability concerning different failure rates, and the effects of various rates/costs on profit are provided.
