In this paper the class of acyclic fork-join queuing networks that arise in various applications, including parallel processing and flexible manufacturing are studied. In such queuing networks, a fork describes the simultaneous creation of several new customers, which are sent to different queues.

From this, the stability… CONTINUE READING
