Stochastics Seminar :: Tandem Lines with Dedicated and Flexible Servers

Primary tabs

Consider a tandem queueing network with $Ngeq 2$ stations, $Mgeq 1$ servers, infinite supply of jobs in front of station 1, infinite room for completed jobs after station $N$, and either a finite or infinite buffer between any two consecutive stations. We study the dynamic allocation of servers to stations with the goal of maximizing the long-run average throughput, assuming that only a subset of the servers are flexible in that they are able to work at several stations, with the remaining servers being dedicated to particular stations.
