Homework – Technical Note 7 1. Use model 1 (M/M/1 queue). = λ 4/hour = μ 6/hour a. 3333 . 6 4 1 1 1 = - = - = - ρ or 33.33% b. ) 4 6 ( 6 4 ) ( 2 2 - = - = q L =1.33, 4 33 . 1 = = q q L W = 1/3 hour or 20 minutes c. ) 4 6 ( 6 4 ) ( 2 2 - = - = q L = 1.33 students d. At least one other student waiting in line is the same as at least two in the system.

Use model 1 (M/M/1 queue). a. = 4/hour = 10/hour (service rate 40% faster) ) 4 10 ( 10 4 ) ( 2 2 - = - = q L = .267 students Waiting cost = number in line times goodwill loss per hour times number of hours per day =.267(10)8 = $21.33 per day Total cost = waiting cost + additional service cost =$21.33 + $99.50 = $120.83 per day b. Use model 3 (M/M/s queue). M=2, 6 4 = =.667 Interpolating from Exhibit TN7.11, q L = .0837 Therefore, waiting cost = number in line times goodwill loss per hour times of
