This master thesis describes the challenge of planning manufacturing lead times in unreliable, unbalanced and sequential production systems subject to a target service level. By means of the buffer strategy proposed in this report, time buffers are estimated for attaining a target service level and consequently, enhancing the reliability of internal lead times. This buffer strategy is applied to ASML’s manufacturing settings.
