The application of Norton’s theorem from electrical circuit theory on queueing networks with infinite capacities is well-known and very useful for cases where a node of the network should be analyzed under different workload. In this work a method is developed which allows the application of Norton’s theorem on queueing networks with finite capacities. A node is arbitrarily selected and the subnetwork containing all remaining nodes are replaced by a composite node with infinite capacity. The… CONTINUE READING
