Question

Queuing at Amusement Park Vehicle Entrance: Vehicles begin arriving at an amusement park one hour before the park opens, at a rate of 3 vehicles per min (assume D/D/1).

A. How long after the first vehicle arrival will the queue dissipate?

B. What is the average service rate at the parking lot gate?

Given: Vehicles begin
to arrive at a park entrance at 7:45 A.M. at a constant rate of six
per minute and at a constant rate of four vehicles per minute from
8:00 A.M. on. The park opens at 8:00 A.M. and the manager wants to
set the departure rate so that the average delay per vehicle is no
greater than 9 minutes (measured from the time of the first arrival
until the queue clears).

Vehicles arrive at an entrance to a stadium. There is a single
gate (at which all vehicles must stop), where a stadium attendant
collects a parking fee. There are 20 vehicles waiting in a queue at
the stadium gate when it opens at 7:00 PM, at which time vehicles
arrive at a rate of 240 veh/h. If the time required to collect a
parking fee is 12 seconds and assuming D/D/1 queuing, (1) What time
does the queue dissipate and...

A vehicle queue is formed at an entrance to the toll plaza due
to a malfunction of one of the toll booths. The malfunction is
corrected after 30 minutes, at which time all the toll booths are
fully operational. The following is known about the traffic and
service rate at the toll plaza:
Demand (vehicle arrival rate), constant during the entire time
= 29 veh/min
Normal toll processing rate (vehicle departure rate) = 34
veh/min
Toll processing rate (vehicle departure...

A small parking lot has 3 spaces (bays). Vehicles arrive
randomly (according to a Poisson process) at an average rate of 6
vehicles per hour. The parking time has an exponential distribution
with a mean of 30 minutes. If a vehicle arrives when the three
parking spaces are occupied, it leaves immediately without waiting
or returning.
Find the percentage of lost customers, i.e., vehicles that
arrive but cannot park due to full occupancy.
Find the average number of vehicles in...
