Put your name and UN number of this sheet. Use only one side of the solutions papers (the backs will not be graded). Show your work for credit. Compute
your answers to at least 3 decimals. 30 points . I. Consider a workstation model with an Erlang2 service process. To model this
situation using the statediagram approach, this service process is broken into two
exponential phases (denoted below as p1 and p2). So,‘ assume that for an M / E2 / 1/ 3 model, we have solved for the probabilities:
Po: Pinup Pun: Pap” F2422: pap” p3,p2 where pm stands for 1' customers in the system and the server process in phase It
denoted as pic (I: = 1, 2) . Answer the following questions using the above probabilities: (a) write the equation for the server utilization;
(b) write the equation for the MR, (note in the queue);
(6) write the equation for the proportion of the time that theserver is in phase 2; (d) write the equation for the system throughput ths; 20 points
