Problem 10.5 Problem 10.7 Consider a single machine subject to Poisson arrivals of jobs. The jobs arrive with a rate of 0.65 per hour. The processing time of a job has a mean of half an hour and a standard deviation of 10 minutes. (a) What is the average waiting time in queue of a job? (b) What is the expected length of time between two idle periods? (Hint: Recall that, for a random variable X, Var(X) = E(X2) –E(X)2.) 5. Assume that the jobs in problem 4 are divided into two priority classes. The first priority class is serviced before jobs in the second priority class. If a class 2 job is in service, it is *not* preempted to service a class 1 customer. a.

    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.
