Horn Effect
-If a person seems particularly deficient in a critical trait, then that person is automatically assumed to be deficient in many other traits

Ex. Employee who is constantly "late" to work (perhaps due to other non-work responsibilities in the morning) is assumed to be negligent in their work-related duties, not committed to the company/project, and perhaps even lazy overall.
Measuring Capacity
Ti = average time between arrivals
Tp = average processing time of a job
c = number of parallel servers
Arrival rate (measures throughput rate)= 1/Ti
Service rate (measures capacity) = c/Tp
Ri < Rp - adequate capacity
Utilization rate = Tp/(c x Ti)
