On Effectivity of Delays in Queuing Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 242)


For queuing systems with cyclic service for reducing of a customer average waiting time before service the delay of beginning service is introduced. The class of queuing systems for which it is advisable to introduce delay is described. The form of optimal function minimizing a customer average waiting time has found. Numerical examples demonstrating these results are given.
