I need to know the basics of stochastic process modelling. I am trying to develop a manufacturing system with stochastic nature but I don't know the basics kindly help me with it

what kind of stochastic behavior do you need to model?

Good morning sir,
I am having number of similar machine to do same kind of process in my model. the part from previous station what to go to any one of the machine (station), i need to make this machine selection process stochastic in nature it should select the machine randomly based on availability of the machine and also i want to model the breakdown of the machine also in stochastic nature

if you assign failures to a machine (e.g. as availability and MTTR) the time between the failures and the failure duration is already randomly distributed; the exit strategy cyclical (non blocking) selects the successor depend on their availability;

so you can model your task with the basic functions of Plant Simulation
