An algorithm is developed to determine the schedule for n arrivals to a single server exponential first come, first served service which will minimize the sum of customer waiting and server availability costs.Expand

This paper describes a new modeling system - Simiotrade - that is a departure from the design of existing modeling tools with the aim of improving the activity of model building with a paradigm shift from the process orientation to an object orientation.Expand

This paper describes the modeling system - Simio™ - that is designed to simplify model building by promoting a modeling paradigm shift from the process orientation to an object orientation.Expand

A closed form solution involving only finite sums is obtained for the probability that exactly j services occur over a time interval of length t in a queueing system that is idle at the beginning of the interval.Expand

Abstract In this paper the application of control variates for multipopulation simulation experiments is discussed. Procedures for statistical analysis, when these variates are observed, are… Expand

In 1978, L. W. Schruben and B. H. Margolin recommended a correlation induction strategy for a special class of multipopulation simulation experiments.Expand
