Question

Problem 15-3 (Algorithmic) Willow Brook National Bank operates a drive-up teller window that allows customers to complete bank transactions without getting out of their cars. On weekday mornings, arrivals to the drive-up teller window occur at random, with an arrival rate of 18 customers per hour or 0.3 customers per minute. In the same bank waiting line system, assume that the service times for the drive-up teller follow an exponential probability distribution with a service rate of 30 customers per hour, or 0.5 customers per minute. Determine the following operating characteristics for the system:

The probability that no customers are in the system. If required, round your answer to four decimal places. P0 =

The average number of customers waiting. If required, round your answer to four decimal places.

Lq =

The average number of customers in the system. If required, round your answer to the nearest whole number.

L =

the average time a customer spends waiting. If required, round your answer to four decimal places.

Wq = min

The average time a customer spends in the system. If required, round your answer to the nearest whole number.

W = min

The probability that arriving customers will have to wait for service. If required, round your answer to four decimal places.

Pw =

Answer #1

Given

Arrival rate , 18/hr

Departure rate , 30 /hr

Number of servers = 1

By M/M/1 model,

Probability that no customers in the system ,P(0)= 1 -18/30 = 0.4

Average number of customers waiting , L_{q} =
= 18^2/ 30×12= 0.9

Average number of customers in the system , L = = 18/12= 1.5

Average time of a customer spend waiting , W_{q}
=
= 18/30*12= 0.05 hr = 3 min

Average time of customer in the system,W= =1/12= 0.0833 hr = 5 min

Probability that arriving customer will have to wait for device,P(w)=1-P(0)=1-0.4=0.6

Willow Brook National Bank operates a drive-up teller window
that allows customers to complete bank transactions without getting

A Security Pacific Bank branch has opened up a drive through
teller window. There is a single service lane, and customers in
their cars line up in a single line to complete bank transactions.
The average time for each transaction to go through the teller
window is exactly four minutes. Throughout the day, customers
arrive independently and largely at random at an average rate of
ten customers per hour.

The National Bank of Germany is opening a new bank teller.
Management estimates that customers will arrive at the rate of 10
per hour. The teller who will staff the window can serve customers
at the rate of one every four minutes.
Assuming Poisson arrivals and exponential service, find:
Average number of customers in the system.
Average time in the system.
Average waiting time in the line.
Average number of customers in the line.
Utilization of the teller.

The First American Bank of Rapid City has one outside drive-up
teller. It takes the teller an average of 4 minutes to serve a bank
customer. Customers arrive at the drive-up window at a rate of 12
per hour. The bank operations officer is currently analyzing the
possibility of adding a second drive-up window, at an annual cost
of $20,000. It is assumed that arriving cars would be equally
divided between both windows. The operations officer estimates that
each minute’s...
