Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) has limitations in capital to upgrade the production process especially in installing new machines in parallel line. Generally the machines are installed in single-line and not equipped with a modern technology. If any machines in the series are breakdown and stopped, the whole production system also stopped. By understanding the condition, most of SMEs struggle to reduce the overhead cost and increase the company’s profit by escalating the availability of the machines. A simple yet powerful Markov model is used in this study to identify the prime cost involves in production line downtimes. The influence of the performance of a single machine on a line is investigated. A case study in the production of the tamarind juice drink, obviously when the failure rate of the machines is reduced, the cost of lost also can be reduced.
