Customers arrive at a post ofﬁce with a single server. Fifty percent of the customers buy stamps, and take 2 minutes to do so. Twenty percent come to pick up mail and need 3 minutes to do so. The rest take 5 minutes. Assuming all these times are deterministic and that the arrivals form a Poisson process with a rate of 18 per hour, compute the expected number of customers in the post ofﬁce in steady state.
Answer:
Expected number of customers in the Post office in steady state = 13.3
Explanation:
Fifty percent of the customers take 2 minutes, Twenty percent need 3 minutes and rest take 5 minutes.
Therefore,
Average service time = 0.50*2 + 0.20*3 + 0.30*5 = 3.1 minutes.
Average service rate = = (1/3.1)*60 = 19.3548 customers per hour.
Mean arrival rate = = 18 per hour.
Expected number of customers in the post ofﬁce in steady state =
=13.2861
Expected number of customers in the system = 13.3

roblem Consider a single server queueing system where the customers arrive according to a Poisson process with a mean rate of 18 per hour, and the service time follows an exponential distribution with a mean of 3 minutes. (1). What is the probability that there are more than 3 customers in the system? (2). Compute L, Lq and L, (3). Compute W, W and W (4). Suppose that the mean arrival rate is 21 instead of 18, what is the...
QUESTION 5 0.5 In a single-server queuing system, 10 customers arrive per hour, and 20 customers are served per hour. What is the average number of customers in the waiting line? (Give the answer to one decimal point.)
Customers arrive at a bank that has 1 teller and they wait in line on a first-come, first-sorved basis. Customers arrive according to a Poisson process with a rate of 14.5 per hour. It takes on average 4 minutes for a customer to be served by the tellor. No customer leaves without going through service with the teller. The standard deviation of the service time is 2 minutes. What is the average time a customer spends waiting in line? (Enter...
QUESTION 1 Customers arrive at a hair salon according to a Poisson process with an average of 16 customers per hour. Which of the following is most likely true, based on this information: a. The hair salon serves customers on a walk-in basis (rather than by appointment times) b. If 10 customers arrive in the first hour, it is likely that 22 customers will arrive in the next hour. c. If the salon can serve an average of 20 customers...
During the early morning hours, customers arrive at a branch post office at an average rate of 45 per hour (Poisson), while clerks can handle transactions in an average time (exponential) of 4 minutes each. For 5 clerks, what is the service rate (mu)?
subject: operations research When customers arrive at Cool's Ice Cream Shop, they take a number and wait to be called to purchase ice cream from one of the counter servers. From experience in past summers, the store's staff knows that customers arrive at a rate of 150 per hour on summer days between 3:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., and a server can serve 1 customer in 1 minute on average. Cool's wants to make sure that customers wait no longer...
For an infinite-source, single server system with an arrival rate of 15 customers per hour (Poisson) and service time of 2 minutes per customer (exponential), the average number waiting in line to be served is: a. 0.1 b. 0.133 c. 0.50 d.0.250
Problem 8: 10 points Consider a queuing system M/M/1 with one server. Customer arrivals form a Poisson process with the intensity A 15 per hour. Service times are exponentially distributed with the expectation3 minutes Assume that the number of customers at t-0, has the stationary distribution. 1. Find the average queue length, (L) 2. What is the expected waiting time, (W), for a customer? 3. Determine the expected number of customers that have completed their services within the 8-hour shift
**LOOKING FOR FORMULAS, ANSWERS PROVIDED. Problem-1: At a single-phase, multiple-channel service facility, customers arrive randomly. Statistical analysis of past data shows that the interarrival time has a mean of 20 minutes and a standard deviation of 4 minutes. The service time per customer has a mean of 15 minutes and a standard deviation of 5 minutes. The waiting cost is $200 per customer per hour. The server cost is $25 per server per hour. Assume general probability distribution and no...
A single server waiting line system has an arrival pattern characterized by a Poisson distribution with 3 customers per hour.
