NON-PREEMPTIVE PRIORITIES IN MACHINE INTERFERENCE.
FLORIDA STATE UNIV TALLAHASSEE DEPT OF STATISTICS
A model of machine interference is studied in which one repairman is assigned to maintain several batteries of machines with a finite number of machines in each battery. The model, which assumes non-preemptive priorities, random breakdowns and general repair time distributions, is closely analogous to the classical priority queueing model of Kesten and Runnenburg. A system of equations for the multivariate binomial moments of the number of machines working in each battery immediately after a repair is completed, is established and solved. Author
