Queueing networks are studied with general service requirements and routing depending upon the next required service time. A non-standard product form expression is obtained that averages out dependencies of routing and service times.

A Tandem Queuewith a Movable Server: An Eigenvalue Approach
This paper analyzes a two station tandem queue with Poisson arrivals and exponential service times, and it is shown that this method is substantially faster than matrix analytic methods. Expand

A comparison of G-Networks with Multiple Classes of Signals and Positive Customers and Discrete-Time Queueing Systems shows how different approaches to queue management can produce different results. Expand
Networks of Waiting Lines
One of the least understood classes of operations problems is that concerned with the design, loading, and, especially, the scheduling of discrete, statistically varying flows through complexExpand
Product forms for queueing networks with limited clusters
A general characterization is given, in terms of local solutions of state dependent traffic equations, from which the existence and structure of a product form can be concluded, which leads to new product form examples such as with a weak reversible cluster routing or a non-reversible routing both within and in between limited station clusters.

The theory of insensitivity is extended to include processes where some of the routing probabilities of the process are made dependent upon the length of time the generally distributed variables haveExpand

A new property of queueing discipline, station balance, seems to explain why some disciplines yield product form solutions for queues and networks using nonexponential service disciplines and otherExpand
