Abstract:

In this study the authors deal with the determination of optimal service rate in an MM1 queue. The arrival rate is unknown and assumed to be a random variable with a known distribution function. Holding and operating costs are considered and service rate is determined to minimize total expected discounted costs for infinite horizon. The effects of the arrival rates distribution properties on the characteristics of the system are examined.
