Homework 6 Solution 7.a) See the Arena model flowchart to show that the warm-up period is approximately 2000 minutes. The 6000 minutes of steady-state operation were divided into eight 750-minute batches. The resulting batch means for waiting time (Wq), number waiting (Lq), and instantaneous utilization (rho) are shown below, along with appropriate confidence intervals.

    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.
