(d) Show that for M/M/1/∞ queue model


where λn and µn are the means of Poisson and exponential distributions respectively where there are n people in the system.


Suppose the system is in state j at time t. There are j people in the system. In the next time interval of a very small duration Δt, the system can move to state j-1or j + 1with the following probabilities:

Prove that the number of basic variables is a balanced transportation problem is at most m+n1 , where m is the number of origins and n is the number of destinations.


First note that there are in all m + n constraints. We shall show that one of these is redundant so that there are in effect m+n1 equation in mn variables and hence at most m+n1 basic variable are there. We note… (263 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Solve the following problem Simplex method.

Maximize Z = 8x1+6x2

Subject to

x1+x2 ≤ 10

2x1+3x2 ≤ 25

x1+5x2 ≤ 35

x1, x2 ≥ 0


The Simplex algorithm is an iterative procedure for solving LP problems in a finite number of steps. It consists of

  • Having a trial basic feasible solution to constraint-equations

  • Testing whether it is an optimal solution

  • Improving the first trial solution by a set of rules and repeating the process till… (573 more words) …
