Abstract : In certain traffic and storage operations many types of customers use a common service facility. At an airport runway, for example, landings and departures may consist of many types and sizes of propeller and jet aircraft, each with different service characteristics. It is often possible to assign each customer to a priority class n = 1, 2,...,N + 1 and devise an ordered servicing rule, as a function of n, which leads to better performance of the service system than could be expected if customers were serviced in the order of their arrival.
