Question

Customers arrive at bank according to a Poisson process with rate 20 customers per hour. The bank lobby has enough space for 10 customers. When the lobby is full, an arriving customers goes to another branch and is lost. The bank manager assigns one teller to customer service as long as the number of customers in the lobby is 3 or less. She assigns two tellers if the number is more than 3 but less than 8. Otherwise she assigns three tellers. The service times of the customers are i.i.d. exponential random variables with mean 4 minutes. Compute the expected amount of time in which three tellers are assigned to customer service during an 8-hour day, assuming the lobby is empty at the beginning of the day.

Answer #1

. A bank has 4 tellers with different service rates, i.e.,
teller 1 averages 10 customers/hour, teller 2 averages 15
customers/hour, teller 3 averages 12 customers/hour, and teller 4
averages 10 customers/hour (all with exponential service times).
Assume that there are 20 seats in the lobby, and any customer
arriving to a fully-occupied lobby leaves.
a. If the system is modeled as a Markov chain, what is the total

Customers arrive to a savings bank according to a Poisson
distribution with mean 3 per hour. Then, they either complete a
transaction with a bank teller or meet with a financial officer,
and leave the bank when they are done.
What is the probability that exactly 2 customers arrive in the
next three hours?
What is the probability that at least 3 customers arrive in the
next two hours?
What is the probability that nobody arrives in the next 30...

A large bank branch employs 5 tellers to serve its customers.
Customers arrive according to a Poisson process at a mean rate of 3
per minute. The transaction time between the teller and customer
has an exponential distribution with a mean of 1 minute. The
management has established the following guidelines for the
satisfactory level of service to customers:
The average number of customers waiting in line to begin
service should not exceed 1.
At least 95% of the time,...

Suppose that customers arrive at a bank at a rate of 10 per
hour. Assume that the number of customer arrivals X follows a
Poisson distribution.
Find the probability of more than 25 people arriving within the
next two hours using the Poisson mass function.
Find the probability of more than 25 people arriving within the
next two hours using the normal approximation to the Poisson.
Compute the percent relative difference between the exact
probability computed in part 1 and...

Customers arrive at a bank according to a Poisson process with
rate 10 per hour.
Given that two customers arrived in the ﬁrst 5 minutes, what is
the probability that
(a) both arrived in the ﬁrst 2 minutes.
(b) at least one arrived in the ﬁrst 2 minutes.

The average number of customers arriving at a bank branch is
eight per hour. Assume that customer arrivals follow a Poisson
process. The bank opens at 9:00 am in the morning. Answer the
following questions accordingly.
a) What is the probability that the first customer will arrive
after 9:10 am?
b) Suppose that it is now 9:15 and the first customer has
arrived at 9:12 am. What is the probability that the second
customer will arrive after 9:25 am?
c)...

LF Bank has 3 tellers serving customers through a shared line
where the next customer in line goes to the first available teller.
Each teller can serve 30 customers per hour with exponential
service times and the customers arrive at a rate of 47 per hour,
according to a Poisson distribution. On average, how many customers
are in the system? (Note: carry all your results to at least 4
decimal places)
Round your final answer to 2 decimal places.

State Bank always has two tellers on duty. Customers arrive to
receive service from a teller at a mean rate of 40 per hour. A
teller requires an average of 2 minutes to serve a customer. When
both tellers are busy, an arriving customer joins a single line to
wait for service. Experience has shown that customers wait in line
an average of 1 minute before service begins.
(a) Describe why this is a queueing system.
(b) Determine the basic...

customers arrive at a nail salon according to a poisson process
with rate 10 per hour. 30% of customers come in for only a
manicure. 30% only for a pedicure, and 40% for both.
what is the expe ted waiting time in MINUTES between manicure
oy customer arrivals?
