For a given accumulator size, what is the probability that the downstream segment is starved? 3. For a given accumulator size, what is the probability that the upstream segment is blocked? 4. What are the performance characteristics (MTBF, MTTR, efficiency) of the segments? Key Assumptions 1. Stations modeled as bernoulli random variables; stations are i.i.d. 2. Segments modeled as binomial random variables. 3. Accumulator is modeled as a M/M/1/c queue where c is the accumulator size+1 4. Shaded cells denote user-specified inputs, unshaded cells denote final or intermediate outputs Upstream Segment Downstream Segment Explanation p(station failure) 0.0018 p(station failure) 0.0018 Probability that a station experiences a minor failure during a cycle E[# cycles until failure] 550 E[# cycles until failure] 550

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
