Serial correlation coefficients are useful measures of the interdependence of successive waiting times. Potential applications include the development of linear predictors and determining simulation run lengths. This paper presents the algorithm for calculating such correlations in the multiserver exponential service queue, and relates it to known results for single server queues.
