Flexible servers in tandem lines with setup costs

Abstract

We study the dynamic assignment of flexible servers to stations in the presence of setup costs that are incurred when servers move between stations. The goal is to maximize the long-run average profit. We provide a general problem formulation and some structural results, and then concentrate on tandem lines with two stations, two servers, and a finite… (More)
