Piston plays a vital role in almost all types of vehicles. The present study discusses the behavioral study of a piston
manufacturing plant. Manufacturing plants are complex repairable systems and therefore, it is difficult to evaluate
the performance of a piston manufacturing plant using stochastic models. The stochastic model is an efficient
performance evaluator for repairable systems. In this paper, two stochastic models and computation algorithm of
the piston manufacturing plant are illustrated using the state-space transition diagram and availability parameter is
used for its behavioral study. Finally, the conclusion is discussed based on the resulting computations.
