This paper deals with the N policy M/G/1 queue with working breakdowns. The supplementary variable and probability generating function techniques are implemented to develop the steady-state results. The stability condition of a stable queue, as well as several system performance measures, are also derived. A two-stage optimization method is employed to determine the optimal threshold N and the optimal joint values of two mean service rates until the stability constraint is satisfied. To
