In a waiting line model situation, arrivals occur around the clock at a rate of six per day, and the service occurs at one very three hours. Assume the Poisson and exponential distributions.

a. What is Mean Arrival Rate?
b. What is Mean Service Rate?
c. Find probability of no units in the system.
d. Find average number of units in the system.
e. Find average time in the waiting line.
f. Find average time in the system.
g. Find the probability that there is one person waiting.
h. Find the probability that an arrival will have to wait.

Waiting Line Models and Simulation

Please help with the given problem:

It seems that simulation could handle any situation or study. But is that always true? Discuss instances in which a simulation would be important and useful, and then a situation in which a simulation would not be appropriate. Finally, include a set of rules you would use to determine if a simulation is appropriate for a given situation (write them out in a list: 1) 2) 3) etc.).
