Reservicing some customers in M/G/1 queues under three disciplines
Salehi-Rad, M. R., Mengersen, Kerrie L., & Shahkar, Gholamhossein (2004) Reservicing some customers in M/G/1 queues under three disciplines. International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences, 32, pp. 1715-1723.
Consider an M/G/1 production line in which a production item is failed with some probability and is then repaired. We consider three repair disciplines depending on whether the failed item is repaired immediately or first stockpiled and repaired after all customers in the main queue are served or the stockpile reaches a specified threshold. For each discipline, we find the probability generating function (p.g.f.) of the steady-state size of the system at the moment of departure of the customer in the main queue, the mean busy period, and the probability of the idle period.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
