This paper gives a queuing analysis of a conveyor-serviced production station using a state-dependent sequential range policy for unloading units from the conveyor into a reserve. The stationary distribution of the number of units in the reserve and the expected delay per unit processed are derived for a Poisson arrival process. The form of the optimal unloading policy, which minimizes the expected delay, will be established.
