Queueing Models for Performance Analysis: Selection of Single Station ModelsEuropean Journal of Operational Research (1992)
Queueing networks are increasingl being used in facility planning to evaluate alternatives. The foundation of such models is an accurate approximation of the single-station queue. Several alternative models have beenn proposed for the single-station queue with fini buffers and general arrival and service processes. This paper compares five such approximations by examining how the values of the queue parameters impact the performance methods are shown to be more accurate and less biased than alternative approximations.
