An Approximation Method for General Tandem Queueing Systems Subject to Blocking
MARYLAND UNIV COLLEGE PARK SYSTEMS RESEARCH CENTER
Pagination or Media Count:
An iterative approximation algorithm is presented for calculating the stationary queue size probabilities of tandem queueing systems subject to blocking. The algorithm combines a decompositionaggregation technique with exact analytical results for two-node systems. It applies to tandem lines where failure-type servers with phase-type service and repair time distributions are in attendance under various blocking disciplines.
