For a given choice of the maximum allowable total storage parameter, the performance of constant work-in-process (CONWIP) disciplines in unreliable transfer lines subjected to a constant rate of demand for parts, is characterized via a tractable approximate mathematical model. For a ( n?1) machines CONWIP loop, the model consists of n multi-state machine single buffer building blocks, separately solvable once a total of ( n?1) unknown constants shared by the building blocks are initialized. The multi-state machine is common to all building blocks, and its n discrete states approximate the joint operating state of the machines within the CONWIP loop; each of the first ( n?1) blocks maps into a single internal buffer dynamics, while the nth building block characterizes total work-in-process (wip) dynamics. The blocks correspond to linear n component state equations with boundary conditions. The unknown (shared) constants in the block dynamics are initialized and calculated by means of s
