A cylinder factorisation system on a category is a generalisation of a factorisation system in which we have a pair $(E, M)$, where $E$ is a class of small cocones, and $M$ is a class of small cones, such that every cylinder factorises uniquely as a cocone in $E$ followed by a cone in $M$.
Cylinder factorisation systems are algebras for a pseudomonad structure given by sending each category to its Isbell envelope: see Garner 2015.
Cylinder factorisation systems were introduced in:
The special case in which $E$ and $M$ comprise classes of discrete cones was introduced in:

The special case in which $E$ is a class of epimorphisms and $M$ is a class of cones was studied in the following papers, including an application to colimits in categories of algebras:

Earlier still, the following considered the special case in which the right class furthermore is required to comprise discrete cones:
