Second Order (Pipeline) Delay Array - Attrition

This module ages a stock over two sequential periods of time, Time Delay, whilst accommodating attrition losses along the way. This is the same as placing items on a conveyor belt and removing a fraction of them before they reach the end. The remaining items are immediately placed on a second conveyor belt. This module enhances the functionality of the First Order Pipeline Delay—Attrition, by adding specifically defined dimensions to aid analysis. This module is effectively produced by combining two first-order modules. These modules can be connected together in aging chains of any required length.
