Abstract:

This research project was undertaken to evaluate the applicability of queuing theory-in particular the priority queuing theory-to the evaluation of priority queuing situations in military information systems. The queuing theory has been applied to the evaluation of the queuing situations in the 473-L system. The waiting-time distribution for a single-server, head-of-the-line, priority queuing model has been evaluated. The application of Variance Reduction Method to the Simulation of Priority Queuing Systems has been investigated. Finally, guides and procedures for the application of queuing models in structuring information systems were outlined.
