Jackson Networks with Unlimited Supply of Work

  title={Jackson Networks with Unlimited Supply of Work},
  author={Gideon Weiss},
We consider a Jackson network in which some of the nodes have an infinite supply of work: when all the customers queued at such a node have departed, the node will process a customer from this supply. Such nodes will be processing jobs all the time, so they will be fully utilized and experience a traffic intensity of 1. We calculate flow rates for such networks, obtain conditions for stability, and investigate the stationary distributions. Standard nodes in this network continue to have product… CONTINUE READING
