This paper discusses the performance analysis of a selected system in a process industry. The selected plant comprises of various systems. One of the most important functionaries of the selected plant is ball mill system. It has five subsystems arranged in series. We purpose a mathematical model. We use probalistic approach and derive differential equations based on Markov-Death process. These equations are solved using normalizing conditions to determine the steady state availability of the ball mill system. The performance of each subsystem of ball mill system is analyzed and a decision support system is developed. The results of the proposed model of this paper are useful to the management for the timely execution of proper maintenance decisions and hence enhance the system performance.
