Simulation of queuing systems

Consider the following continuously operational job shop. Inter arrival times of jobs are described as follows:
Time between arrivals (hrs) probability
0 0.23
1 0.37
2 0.28
3 0.12

Processing for jobs are normally distributed, with mean 50 minutes and standard deviation of 8 minutes. Construct a simulation table, and perform a simulation for 10 new customers. Assume that when the simulation begins there is one job being processed (scheduled to be completed in 25 minutes) and there is one job with a 50 minute processing time in the queue.

a) What is the average time for the 10 new jobs?
b) What is the average processing time for the 10 new jobs?
c) What is the maximum time in the system for the 10 new jobs?

Solution Summary

This solution provides answers to various questions regarding average time, average processing time, and maximum time.
