ISyE 3232 Stochastic Manufacturing and Service Systems Spring 2011 J. Dai and H. Ayhan Homework 6 February 17, 2011 Please do not hand in; but you should have it done before the 1st test 1. A production line has two machines, Machine A and Machine B, that are arranged in series. Each job needs to processed by Machine A first. Once it finishes the processing by Machine A, it moves to the next station, to be processed by Machine B. Once it finishes the processing by Machine B, it leaves the production line. Each machine can process one job at a time. An arriving job that finds the machine busy waits in a buffer. (The buffer sizes are assumed to be infinite.) The processing times for Machine A are iid having exponential distribution with mean 4 minutes. The processing times for Machine B are iid with mean 2 minutes. Assume that the interarrival times of jobs arriving at the production line are iid, having exponential distribution with mean of 5 minutes. (a) What is the utilization of Machine A? What is the utilization of Machine B?
